CHAPTER 5

CO-MADRES ACTIVIST

I continued visiting Rafael in jail. Sundays and Thursdays were visitors' days. On Sundays, I noticed that some women arrived, maybe two, three, or four, to speak with the prisoners and to bring food and other little things they needed. I didn't know who they were, but on my second visit to the prison I found out.

Rafael said to me, "I got to know these women here in the prison. They are looking for some scrap of hope, for information about the whereabouts of their disappeared relatives. They are also helping us a lot. They bring us food and medicine. They have met with me and the other men arrested at the sugar mill, and asked us if we had any family members who wanted to meet with them, to work with them to denounce what is happening to us. They could help you if you want to work with them. They will give you bus fare so that you can meet with them and see what they are doing."

" It would be interesting to get to know them," I answered. "I would like to see what they can do for you and the other prisoners. I don't have any more money to put up for your defense."

"Yes, I know," he said. "It's hard to find money."

During my next visit I met the women in the prison. The first one I met was Alicia de Blandino. I will never forget her voice or her manner.

"Did you come to visit your compañero?" she asked.

"Yes," I responded.

" How are you feeling?" she asked warmly.

"Okay," I replied.

" Where do you live?" she inquired.
