Tribute for the Argentine-Armenians Victims of the Dirty War

A tribute for the Argentine-Armenians that were victims of the Dirty War in Argentina was held during the afternoon of Saturday 18 April.

The "desaparecidos" ("disappeared") of Armenian origin were remembered in a memorial tile inside a square in Buenos Aires, that also showed the scarf of Madres de Plaza de Mayo, symbol of the fight against the terrorist state, and the Tsitsernakaberd.

The event was attended by one of the founders of Madres de Plaza de Mayo, Nora Cortiñas, along with National Deputy Horacio Pietragalla, Deputy Maria Rachid and head of the National Institute Against Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism, Pedro Mouradian. The activity was conducted by Armenian Cultural Union and Memory Palermo. One of the speakers recalled the story of Soghomon Tehlirian. "It's hard to see a Turkish government that refuses to recognize the cruel reality that was the Armenian Genocide", said Horacio Pietragalla in his speech.

"We embrace again the same principles that took Argentina in terms of memory, truth and justice. It is even more significant for being the centennial of the Armenian Genocide," said Pedro Mouratian.
