Plaza de Mayo Family: The oppression can only break with unity


İSTANBUL - Pepa Noia, who went to Plaza de Mayo Square with 14 women to ask the whereabouts of her daughter Josefina García de Noia who was forced into dissappearance, was also forcefully dissappeared like her daughter. Her other daughter İsabel Noia who met with the Saturday Mothers , said:"We came together and struggled. The oppression in Turkey can only break with more people coming together and support the families."

Argentina was ruled by the junta regime after the military coup in 1976 until 1983. In that period of time, almost 30 thousand people were forced into dissappearance or killed , including leftists according to the data of the humans' rights organizations.The women made the first organized demonstration under the junta regime against the humans' rights violations.
Mothers who kept waiting in waiting rooms to learn the whereabouts of their children, who were insulted instead of getting answers from the authorities, gathered in Plaza de Mayo Square in Buenos Aires in 1977 to make their voices be heard.
The mothers who lead the demonstrations were; Pepa Noia, Cándida Gard, Delicia González, Mirta Baravalle, Azucena Villaflor de Vincenti, Berta Braverman, Haydée García Buelas, María Adela Gard de Antokoletz, Julia Gard, María Mercedes Gard, Kety Neuhaus, Raquel Arcushin and Sra. de Caimi
One of those 14 mothers was Pepa Noia whose daughter was taken under custody and was never heard of again. Mother Noia struggled for her daugther Josefina Garcia de Noia for years but her breath was not enough to learh what happened to her daughter.
Noia evaluated what the Saturday Mothers went through just like them. Noia said: "We had our share of oppression in the dictatorship days. But we came together and struggled. The oppression here can only break with the unity of people supporting the families. This is how we got over the oppression. The more people come together with the mothers, the faster the oppression breaks. And those oppressors should understand that a mother who lost her child will never give up her struggle and never sit back at her home doing nothing."
