The origins of such a sad day come from tragic beginnings as President Isabel Peron let military attacks be allowed to be aimed at left-wing activists, militants or socialists. Nearly 10,00 people were killed or disappeared to escape the discrimination of beliefs. Finally the President was overthrown and a new elected official lead the country with a much better manner.
