Nonino Prize "To a Master of our Time" 2006

Madri di Plaza de Mayo

With the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo the Nonino Prize wants to celebrate those who heroically risk their life for thirst of justice. For thirty years the “Crazy ladies” of Plaza de Mayo with a courage that goes beyond human limits, have been challenging the arrogance and the haughtiness of the power marching in the main square of Buenos Aires, each wearing a white head scarf with the name of her desaparecido child written on it.

Some of them were killed, today they are a symbol.

To the “crazy for love”, nourishment of this world, our thanks and our acknowledgement.
