Argentina: Relatives of police shooting victims march in Buenos Aires

Protesters took to the streets of Buenos Aires to demand justice for the victims of 'trigger happy' police, on Thursday. Footage shows the demonstrators, many of them relatives of the victims, with banners and photographs of the dead, as they marched demanding justice from the authorities. «So far in the pandemic, five months, we have had 95 cases of 'trigger happy' people plus the complaints that are about torture,» said Emilia Vasallo, mother of a trigger happy victim. The rally was attended by Cristina Castro, mother of Facundo Astudillo, a young man who disappeared in Bahía Blanca on April 30 after being detained by police for violating quarantine. Forensic tests are currently being carried out on human remains found in the area where 23-year-old Astudillo went missing. «I am waiting for only the DNA to take my boy home. My boy came out alive. When the only sin he committed was being in love and wanting to come back to his girlfriend,» said Cristina Castro. According to a report by the Co-ordinator Against Police and Institutional Repression (CORREPI), 92 people have been killed by state agents since March 20, the day the quarantine began in Argentina.
