(en) Argentina: Attempt to evict the Mothers of the plaza de Mayo

      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Less than 20 hours before the beginning of the historical
Resistance March that is organized each year by the Mothers of
of the Plaza de Mayo, police troops - on the orders of the City
government - are trying to clear from the square both the
Mothers and all the comrades of the social and struggle
organizations who, on finding out about the imminent repression,
began to gather spontaneously in the Plaza de Mayo in order to
prevent this.

Since the events of 19th and 20th of December 2001 they have
erected in a wall that prevents any approach the government
buildings. Thus, the Plaza de Mayo - in which a great part of
the most important political events of our history have taken
place - has remained out of bounds. The Mothers, untiring
fighters, have dedicated themselves to the task of recovering
the Plaza and decided to up the ante for tomorrow's march from
the other side of the blockade. The government objected and has
decreed that there will be repression if they set up there
because, as the head of the police operation said "we will not
allow what happened last year to happen again". To this end, the
police have already dismantled the preparations but are now
insisting on clearing the square of demonstrators.

Comrades from the OSL of Argentina who are there inform us about
the tension that exists ... in the background of their
communication can be heard the chanting of our comrades but also
the barking of police dogs. 

That is all we can report for the moment (1.00am Wednesday,
December 11th 2002)

The people in the streets until we win!
