  • Description

    The World Cup has been and gone -- but in Argentina relatives of people missing since the military junta took power in 1976 are still staging their weekly protest in Buenos Aires.

    SYNOPSIS: Mostly women parade silently round the Plaza de Mayo every Thursday. During the period of the World Cup observers in Argentina say that the police were reluctant to move in on them, with so many foreign journalists around to see what was happening. It is illegal to hold demonstrations in Argentina -- and police agitators are reported to have stirred p the crowd both last week and again this Thursday.

    Friends hurried this man away when he started speaking top loudly about the fate of his brother who vanished recently. Accordingly to the Argentine Permanent Assembly for Human Rights, at least 2,500 men and women have disappeared since March 1976. These women don't know when or if they will see their loved ones again -- but say their protests will continue.
