Monday, there is a march in La Plata, which I attended with my friend, Jessie. She works for a non-profit, La Asamblea Permanente por los Derechos Humanos (APDH), promoting human rights and awareness. APDH organizes truth trials surrounding La Guerra Sucia trying to bring military leaders to justice and find out what happened to the missing people.
start of the march, Plaza San Martinfliers of missing people were strung around the plazaAPDH volunteers
Vandalism and graffiti were a big part of the march...
Tuesday, I enjoyed my holiday as a typical relaxing weekend day - did some yoga, went for a run, saw friends. I met Becca in the bosque for some mate in the afternoon. There were tons of people enjoying the gorgeous day there. We were certainly not alone in bringing along mate. There was even a line to get a thermos re-fills at the kiosko.
no park experience is complete without the obligatory mate
That night, we went to a free concert (in honor of the memoria) at an abandoned train-station with some friends.
