Image of the Day – Anti-Dictatorship Graffiti in Buenos Aires, 2007

More graffiti from Buenos Aires demanding punishment and an end to impunity to those from the Argentine military dictatorship who committed torture or murdered civilians in the “Dirty War” of 1976-1983. While top-ranking officials like Jorge Videla were tried, convicted, and are currently imprisoned either in jails or under house arrest (or at least those who haven’t already died), the majority of officers and enlisted men who committed torture and were responsible for committing the murders were never tried or sentenced.

"Enough with impunity. Jail for those who committed genocide already!"
