The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo began to meet in the plaza of the city of Buenos Aires of that name on Saturday, April 30, 1977. They were mothers of the "disappeared." The disappeared people were journalists, students and other people who were speaking out against the dictatorship and its atrocities and, as a result, were kidnapped, tortured and presumably murdered.
These mothers wanted to know what had happened to their children. It was illegal to gather in groups and publically protest, but these women met (and still do) in front of the Casa Rosada, the Governement house, every #Thursday at 3pm and marched counterclockwise in the Plaza de Mayo. Since they have become symbols of human rights movements in Argentina and around the world.
Twenty two(ish) years ago I sat in Spanish class at #UCSantaCruz and learned about #LasMadresDeLaPlazaDeMayo This literally changed my life. After that I decided to study Latin American and Latino Studies and shortly after decided to do an exchange in Brazil (because I already spoke Spanish and wanted to learn a new language.) Ever since I have wanted to witness these courageous women who just wanted to know what had happened to their babies.
Today I crossed off one of the things on my bucketlist when I got to witness their #solidarity. It was so #powerful. As I sat in this crowd, I couldn't stop the tears from falling from my eyes. In fact, I am crying as I write this. I have no idea what the word is to describe my feelings other than really sad that people can be so cruel to eachother and that anyone has suffered for speaking up for what is right. #QueFuerte

We may not have done Lilly’s philtrum piercing, but we did have a blast helping her pick out this gorgeous new piece of jewelry! One of the newest additions from the latest @safepiercing exposition, the Diadeem by @regalia.jewelry! We can’t get over the beautiful intricacies of this piece, but particularly that stunning profile! Thanks so much, Lilly! 💫 .
