Every week, always on Thursday 3:30 PM, the Madres de Plaza de Mayo come together to protest silently for a sad cause. They gather in front of the Casa Rosada presidential palace in the center of Buenos Aires to remind people of a painful period in Argentine history that today is known as the Dirty War. The women march in memory and remembrance of their children and grandchildren who had been "disappeared" during the military dictatorship between 1976 and 1983. Every mother wears a white head scarf with the names of their abducted children and family members embroidered in blue letters. The mothers and their supporters demand information from the government about the whereabouts of the desaparecidos. The white head scarf has become the unique symbol for this political movement which is by now over 30 years old. I adore their unbending courage and the never ending endurance in this fight for justice.
