Buenos Aires Herald: New website shines light on legacy of dictatorship-era legislation

Buenos Aires Herald: New website shines light on legacy of dictatorship-era legislation. “A new website, Las Leyes de la Dictadura (‘Laws of the dictatorship’), that launched this week has pulled back the curtain on dictatorship-era legislation, indicating how the legacy of those dark years shapes today’s country. The site … investigates the over 417 laws created, designed and passed under the country’s last military dictatorship (1976-1983) and was launched this week to coincide with today’s 41th anniversary of the 1976 coup d’état.” Site is in Spanish but Google Translate works reasonably well. Don’t be discouraged when the text at the top doesn’t change – it’s an image, looks like. Scroll down.
