But these actions have still not helped most people to find their missing relatives."Now the government receives us. And they give us coffee and nice cookies," said Manuel Ramirez, who went to the Mother's Day march with his wife, Adela. The Ramirez have been searching for their daughter, Monica, for the past eight years.
"There are 70 people in our association [of families with disappeared children] and I only know of one case that has been solved," Ramirez said, when asked if the new government's efforts had yielded any results.
Monica Ramirez went missing at age 20 and was last seen heading to her university to pick up her transcript. Through his own investigations, Manuel Ramirez has been able to give prosecutors information on three possible suspects for her disappearance, who have all been put in jail. But none has revealed any information of Monica's whereabouts.
"What's the use of that," Ramirez said. "Perhaps some justice was served. But what I want to know is where my daughter is."
