Schoklender revealed that Mothers “wanted to form partners with the FARC”
Buenos Aires, December 16, 2011
The former representative of the founding Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, Sergio Schoklender, who is indicted for fraud, gave an interview to journalist Martin Caparros, where he revealed that Hebe de Bonafini, president of the association, was designed in the early 90, “to form partners with Latin American guerrillas, because the revolution was the only option.”
“The idea was to send comrades to form with the FARC in Colombia, with the Zapatistas in Chiapas, and then those peers may come with some training and start a job, in somewhere. That was the only possible model, we saw no other way out. It was unthinkable that the country would recover in eight years, who could imagine that,” Schoklender said.
He added that at the University of the Mothers, weapons were stored. “In college we kept everything. Weapons of all kinds, pistols, machine guns, grenades, plastic, whatever you ask. I remember where we stored things, which was a pit in the basement of the university: we knew the precise location two or three partners and Hebe, but nobody else.”
He also said that in the late 90′s, they planned to kidnap Massera. “In 1999, 2000, we had everything ready to kidnap him: we had done intelligence, we knew how to move, and we had everything ready. My fantasy was to do something very similar to what later became the movie, The Secret in their eyes, right? I wanted the enemy received the message which meant the disappearance. But Hebe was opposed, and eventually proved she was right.”
