D´ANTONIO, Débora. Redes de denuncias políticas y jurídicas por violaciones a los derechos humanos en el plano internacional: el rol de las Madres de Plaza de Mayo (Argentina, 1976-1983). Travesía (San Miguel de Tucumán) [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.2, pp.15-44. ISSN 2314-2707.

During the last military dictatorship in Argentina, the activity of denunciation against the violations of human rights was taken over through the articulation of a series of actions and strategies of groups that emerged in that particular context of deepening state repression. Even though there was a record of defense and solidarity towards the people imprisoned for political reasons, at least since the thirties in our country, the stimulus of an international public opinion, critical of the authoritarianism that had place in the Southern Cone during the middle of the seventies, leaded to initiatives that had a novel and foundational expression at the international level. That is how they implemented the political denunciations in different organisms as Amnesty International, Cruz Roja, Comité de los Derechos Humanos para los Países del Cono Sur (CLAMOR) or any other of legal nature from United Nations. In all of them, especially the mother of people disappeared had an outstanding leadership, either invigorating individual and collective complaints or setting support networks to erode the image of the military regime abroad. This intense activity that was also accompanied by the political work of south american exiles in Europe and USA found its compensation with the arrival of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) to Argentina in the last third of 1979. This article is proposed to link together the footprints of this political actuate and to trace bridges between the labors that different women belonging to the organisms of human rights more prominent from this stage carried forward through the analysis of documental sources from the archive of Madres y Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, the Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales (CELS) and own interviews.
