Argentina: 35th anniversary of the coup

Yesterday, 24th March, was the 35th anniversary of Argentina's last coup. First let's take a look at the front pages:
Anyone familiar with Pagina/12 editorial stance won't be surprised that they devoted their entire front page to the anniversary.
Tiempo chooses an interesting photo for its front page - the late president Nestor Kirchner supervising the removal of the official portraits of the junta leaders in 2004.

La Nacion and Clarin did not flag up the anniversary on their covers, but the former does have this very interesting video of the ESMA.
