A crowd yesterday, 17 years ago, gathered at the intersection of the Colon and General Paz roads to attend the MDLG on March 12, convened by the Youth College and various groups of human, social, trade union and political rights groups. With the slogan "The Terrorist is the state, not the one next to you," they called for the termination of "repressive policies and police persecution of children in neighborhoods", in addition to rejecting the light triggering and denouncing that it is "a state policy ".
A collective cry of "It's Twelve" gave the start signal, and the head of mobilization began to move between the sounds of murgas, artistic interventions, colored missiles and traditional stickers with the faces of young people – the organizations – were killed by the police.
"Here we take up the street again, we raise our history and continue with our struggles. Once again, we cry very loudly: the exit is collective," the organizers said during the march.
It was the first time that the Cape of March was made in the most important cities of the country simultaneously. The mobilization took place in Rosario, La Plata, Mar del Plata, Tandil, and the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.
In Córdoba, in addition to the youth college's referent, the members of the co-ordinator of the relatives of the victims of the light onslaught and Viviana Alegre, the mother of Facundo Rivera Alegre, intervened. There was also Monica Alegre, the young Buenos Aires' mother, Luciano Arruga, who was five years old and found dead, in an emblematic case of allegations of police abuse.
"We continue to fight for children for their rights. They are victims of violent repression throughout the country," he told La Voz Viviana Alegre. The mobilization ended with an act of multitude in which a unified document was read, and various musical bands were then broadcast.
In deconcentration, two young people were arrested. A group of leaders managed to launch them at the end of this edition.
