Argentina: Image of the day

From today's Pagina/12

Judge: Why did you steal babies?
Videla: So that they weren't taught subversive ideas.
Judge: What would be a subversive idea?
Videla: Putting people who steal babies on trial.

This cartoon could actually be from a Spanish paper, where they're talking more and more about this same horrendous crime.

Wanted to share a link on this Pinochet film with you:

I haven't seen the film (looks quite disturbing), but it might be of interest to the readers of MeminLA.

Oh wow, I just watched the first few minutes of that....

In fact I have personally met a young Chilean woman who told me how Pinochet saved the country and the disappeared were all happily living abroad. I didn't really argue at the time because I was in Latin America and well, there's nothing more annoying than a foreigner who claims to know more about your country than you do - but it was pretty shocking.

Thanks for the link!
