Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo announced yesterday that that they have found two more children who disappeared during Argentina’s last dictatorship, raising the total number of found “disappeared” children to 92. According to El Nuevo Herald, one of the children was the child of Mexican María Lourdes Martínez Aranda and Argentine Francisco Goya, leftist activists who disappeared in 1980. The other was the child of María Teresa Trotta and Roberto Castelli, who went missing in 1977. The Abuelas are not revealing where these children, now adults, were found, but they say that it is another victory for people still demanding justice for the horrors of the military dictatorship. The dictatorship lasted from 1976 to 1983.
