Background: Three Argentine human rights groups have called for a massive demonstration in the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires to protest at the disappearance of thousands of people in Argentina in recent years. A group of women calling themselves 'Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo' has been protesting in the square for months,demanding to know the whereabouts of their relatives, many of them young teenagers who have disappeared without trace. Their protest was given renewed vigour with the recent discovery of several hundred bodies in a mass grave at the Grand Bourg cemetery, not far from Buenos Aires. The bodies are believed to be those of people who had "disappeared", many of whom, their families say, had attended the Plaza de Mayo protest, many of them wearing headscarves with the names of their relatives written on them or carrying photographs of their missing children.
