The military junta that ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983 kidnapped, murdered, and "disappeared" as many as 30,000 unarmed civilians. On Thursday, former Argentine dictators Jorge Videla and Reynaldo Bignone were convicted of directing the systematic abduction of infants born in clandestine torture and detention centers to women detainees, who were killed after delivering their babies. The infants were then given to adoptive families close to the military. The convictions vindicate 36 years of efforts by the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo to identify and locate the stolen children, and to bring the perpetrators to justice. With writer, radio producer, and filmmaker Marie Trigona.
