The Spanish Honors Society would like to raise awareness about Argentina’s “Dirty War,” called La Guerra Sucia. This infamous campaign was waged from 1976 to 1983 by Argentina’s military dictatorship against suspected left-wing political opponents when the country's established democracy fell to the military coup. It is estimated that between 10,000 and 30,000 citizens were killed; many of them were “disappeared” – seized by the authorities and never heard from again. They were transported to concentration camps or killed in mass shootings or death flights. Today, Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo march each Thursday in the Plaza, wearing white and holding photos of the disappeared so that Argentina never forgets what happened during the Dirty War. In addition, the Argentinian government is still working with DNA testing to uncover the locations of children who were illegally adopted from disappeared parents by supporters of the dictatorship. To learn more about La Guerra Sucia, visit the Spanish Honors Society bulletin board by the Spanish rooms.
