Hebe de Bonafini on the anti-terrorism law: “if there is a fascist government, they will apply as they want”
December 29, 2011
The Mothers of Plaza de Mayo gave the last round of 2011 to the monument to the historic square of the City of Buenos Aires and their leader, Hebe de Bonafini, called for a review of the antiterrorism law.
“It would be wise to analyze it [the law] a little more, because while it is true that a in constitutional government like Cristina [Kirchner] there is no danger of conviction, but we know that judges of the dictatorship can apply it as they want,” she said .
“We were attacked by terrorists, our children were murdered by terrorists and was justified by an anti-terrorism law. There was torture, death and disappearance. This government will not do that, we are quite sure, but there are judges who are eager t0 do so,” the head of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo continued.
Finally, she warned that “once time passes, I do not know when (hopefully be many years), if there is a fascist [right winged] government , they will apply it as they want. So it must be clear, white on black.”
