Book on Operation Condor to be launched at Argentine Fair

Buenos Aires, May 8 (Prensa Latina) The book "Los años del lobo: Operación Cóndor" (The Years of the Wolf: Operation Condor), by renowned Argentine intellectual Stella Calloni, will launched at the 48th Buenos Aires International Book Fair on Wednesday, 25 years after the publication of its first edition.

The presentation will take place at the Grupo Octubre stand in the La Rural exhibition center at 19:00 hours, local time, with the participation of the author; a survivor from the last civil-military dictatorship (1976-1983), Ana María Careaga, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Adolfo Pérez Esquivel.

First published in 1999, “Los años… ” deals about the plan of extermination and crimes against humanity committed by the dictatorial regimes established in Latin America during the second half of the 20th century and supported by the United States.

It also underscores the need to know what happened to analyze the present and avoid repeating the horrors of that period, during which 30,000 people were detained or missing and hundreds of children were snatched away from their parents in Argentina.

Calloni said that Operación Condor was a counterinsurgency tactic characterized by the selectivity of its victims, including significant political leaders and chiefs of guerrilla forces, which resulted as the only way out of the subjugation and terror generated by coups d’état and plunder and pillage policies in the region.
