Human Rights Speaking Tour:
Patricia Isasa from Argentina and Carlos Mauricio from El Salvador will share their histories about being taken as a poltical prisoner by a military dicatorship.
Brief Bio of Patricia:
At the time of her kidnapping in July of 1976, architect Patricia Indiana Isasa was 16 years old. She was her class delegate to the high-school Students Union in the province of Santa Fe in Argentina. She was taken by a commando group of the state police and was “disappeared” (held clandestinely) for three months. She was then taken to a military barracks, where she was held prisoner without trial or due process for two years and two months.
Now Patricia is here to talk about it. In 1997 Patricia initiated an investigation into her kidnappers’ identities, still unknown to her. Thanks to her relentless research, today 8 people are in jail and awaiting trial, including an ex-federal judge, an ex-assistant secretary for security of Santa Fe, and several ex-policemen (one of them a graduate of the School of the Americas).
