CFK: 'Argentina is a model of what a State that respects institutions should be'

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner attended the ceremony where the grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo received the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize, a prize granted by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco), and received by her leader, Estela de Carlotto.

"Here I am representing millions of Argentines that see in Estela de Carlotto’s figure a true representative of those who could overcome a tragic moment like losing a son.”

Likewise, the Head of State, remarked that Carloto “has become the eyes of humanity after her endless fight for human rights”, and added, “She [Carloto] puts the same strength she put to find her daughter in her search for the sons of the victims of the last dictatorship.”        

Furthermore, Fernández de Kirchner stressed that “The Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo have never used violent methods. Back in the 1970’s, they used to say that they were a bunch of crazy ladies, but I can tell they are the sanest people I’ve ever met.”

To end, the President called for “having good memory, to always pursue the truth and justice so that all grandchildren can be recovered.”
