Almost 30 years ago and still unresolved

The forced disappearance has been a strategy of bad governments and is a systematic plan that has been in charge of dividing and terrorizing the victims, said Eduardo Nachman member of the organization Hijos e Hijas in Argentina, within the framework of the installation of the The first meeting of the Latin American Network on Forced Disappearance in Villavicencio.

For Nachman, this first encounter must be considered as very important because it is essential that all relatives of forced disappearance "listen to us".

According to the member of Sons and Daughters, governments have been responsible for the sophistication or perfection of enforced disappearances to perpetuate impunity and the guarantee non-access to the truth by the relatives who are victims, "then not only forced disappearance is a repressive mechanism, but also impunity is guaranteed in the different orders of the State."

The practice of enforced disappearance has been imposed by different states, initially by the Nazis, then by the French with Algeria, the Americans in Indochina until it arrived with the School of the Americas to Latin America.

"There the students of the School of the Americas, who were a great part of the dictators of Latin America, exercised it. In Chile they killed directly, in Argentina they began with the systematic practice of the disappearance and today it hurts and in front of that pain we have to join "emphasized Nachman.

At the meeting, Nachman said that the best way to be able to resist the impunity that comes from governments and the State is to "get together to listen, to work together".

But, in addition, other possibilities that Nachman's sons and daughters took to this event were, for example, to ask the State and the Government to know the military reports they have about the disappearance of people, about murder and genocide.

"We must continue to believe that we have the strength, the heart and the conviction that justice is necessary to know who was taken and where our missing people are," Nachman concluded.
