On December 27, 2017, the Argentine NGO Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo[3]announced[4]
the recovery of granddaughter number 127. The latest granddaughter to be found
is the daughter of María del Carmen Moyano and Carlos Poblete, militants from
the Montoneros organization[5] who were kidnapped and have been missing since
the last dictatorship[6] in Argentina (1976 – 1983).

The digital news outlet Cosecha Roja[7] briefly tells the story of her parents
and the circumstances surrounding their disappearance:

Con la llegada de la dictadura, los militares allanaron su casa y ella [María
del Carmen Moyano] se mudó a San Juan, donde conoció a Carlos Poblete, un
estudiante de Ingeniería 10 años mayor. “La pareja compartió militancia en la
organizción Montoneros. Luego de seis meses decidieron vivir juntos”, contó
Estela de Carlotto. Entre abril y mayo de 1977 Carlos y María del Carmen
fueron secuestrados en Córdoba y trasladados al centro clandestino de
detención La Perla. Ella ya estaba embarazada.

With the arrival of the dictatorship, the military raided her house and she
[María del Carmen Moyano] moved to San Juan, where she met Carlos Poblete, an
engineering student who was 10 years older than her. “The couple shared
militancy in the Montoneros organization. After six months they decided to
live together,” said Estela de Carlotto. Between April and May of 1977 Carlos
and María del Carmen were kidnapped in Córdoba and taken to the clandestine
detention center La Perla. She was already pregnant.

“Nieta 127″ (Granddaughter 127) was born in captivity between May and June 1977
in the maternity ward of the clandestine detention center of the Navy School of
Mechanics[8] (ESMA). After 40 years, her two uncles and seven aunts celebrate
the closure of an important chapter in their family's history; however, the
wound remains open as the parents’ fate is still unknown.

During the dictatorship, an estimated 30,000 people were victims of forced
disappearances[9] and their children, in a good portion of the cases, were
appropriated by the State through illegal adoptions and clandestine births. The
number is still contested, but human rights defenders and the foundation
Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo  (Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo)[10] — an
organization devoted to the cause of finding the grandchildren of those who
were disappeared – claim this number to be accurate[11].

Adriana, granddaughter #126[13], who had been found just days before attended
the press conference. Two of the granddaughter 127's aunts were present as
well. The identity of the granddaughter 127 herself is not yet known. The
details about the family that raised her were not revealed either in order to
protect their privacy. One of the aunts who was filled with emotion said:

We are going to tell her to not to worry. We're going to give her all the
time in the world to process the situation. We searched for her for 40 years.
We love her intensely.

The joy of the moment could not even be overshadowed by the news of the recent
transfer to home confinement of Miguel Etchecolaz[14], the man that was
responsible for the kidnapping, torture, and murder of a group of high school
students in what became known as the Night of the pencils[15].

Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo confirmed the news. “The aunts of the granddaughter,
who have been waiting for this meeting for 40 years, were present at the
press conference” they said. The news surpassed that of the home confinement
of Etchecolaz…

“We will not stop counting”

Under the hashtag #Nieta127, [16]Twitter was flooded with expressions of joy,
some of them mixed with indignation and disagreement with the justice given to
those responsible. The image shared in many of the tweets shows writing on the
wall of the Casa por la Identidad (the House of Identity, lead by the Abuelas
de Plaza de Mayo) where the context of the forced disappearances during the
dictatorship is recounted. Inside the text, they manually keep count of the
grandchildren that have been reunited with their families:

La Casa por la Identidad de Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, en @espacio_memoria[17]
ya tiene contabilizada la restitución de la #Nieta127[18] Seguimos sumando
logros y esperanzas ! @abuelasdifusion[19]pic.twitter.com/sEcxbp6ThY[20]

— Silvia Flores (@floresimosquera) December 30, 2017[21]

The House of Identity of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, in
@espacio_memoria has already accounted for the restitution of #Nieta127 We
continue adding achievements and hopes! @abuelasdifusion

La #Nieta127[18] nació en la ESMA. El genocida Jorge Luis Magnacco, obstetra
de la ESMA que atendió el parto, está suelto, beneficiado por haber cumplido
dos tercios de su condena.https://t.co/wJJjt5i1ND[22]@abuelasdifusion[19]

— H.I.J.O.S. Capital (@hijos_capital) December 30, 2017[23]

La #Nieta127 was born in the ESMA. The repressor Jorge Luis Magnacco, the
ESMA obstetrician who attended the birth, is free, after having served
two-thirds of his sentence.

Tarda en llegar, y al final, al final, hay recompensa. Bienvenida #Nieta127[18]

It's late in arriving and at last, finally there is a reward. Welcome

Contamos del 1 al 127 y no pararemos de contar. Gracias, Abuelas, y como dijo
Estela de Carlotto: “Feliz año y hasta el próximo nieto”. #Nieta127[18]

— Mariano Vázquez (@marianovazkez) December 31, 2017[29]

We count from 1 to 127 and we will not stop counting. Thank you, Abuelas, and
as Estela de Carlotta said: “Happy New Year and until the next grandchild.”
