After 40 years of activism, the deputy Adriana Diazof Catamarcareceived the prestigious San Fernando Merit Distinction in the category “Human Rights and Social Justice”, awarded by the Municipality of San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca.

For Adriana, it is a recognition of 40 years of activism: “Since I was in high school, in my adolescence, I was always interested in social and political issues. When I turned 17 (year 78) I began to become really aware of inequalities and injustices, I began to look for an explanation for all of this and conversations began with my old man. We always talked a lot with my dad. He told me about his family’s life, which had been hard. Since he was a child he had to work on the street, shining shoes, selling newspapers, whatever, so that his brothers could study. Until he could learn a trade. “He was from the province of Buenos Aires and came to work in Catamarca with a friend.”

The militant Adriana remembers: “Once my dad said something that marked me, that the first time he had a real toy, a truck and a bag of candy, was for Evita. However, at the time, I didn’t understand exactly what he wanted to tell me about not having toys or going to school, because I had had a different childhood and had already entered university. It was at the University where I defined myself and began to get involved with other colleagues of my generation about the reality of the country.”

Militancy

“I joined other young people who formed a political training group and got involved in human rights during the dictatorship. We shared readings and debates about socialism, anarchists, Irigoyenism, Peronism; Along the way we met leaders from the academic and political world, from unionism, particularly relatives of political prisoners and disappeared people who had organized themselves.”

“With the democratic opening I began to be a member of the Intransigent Party (PI), especially influenced by the “Contributions to the National Project of 1975”, the programmatic plexus of the party. From there I participated in different spaces for the defense of Human Rights, since I was a member of the Intransigent Youth until today.”

Recognition

Councilor Leticia Romero highlighted the tireless work of Adriana Díaz together with human rights, social, political and union organizations, seeking to improve the quality of life of the sectors in situations of greatest rights vulnerability. “From a very young age, Ms. Díaz stood out for her activism and commitment to the representation of rights,” she pointed out.

“Today we have the honor of honoring an exceptional woman, whose career exemplifies the true meaning of the fight for human rights. Adriana has shown us that human rights are a transversal cause that permeates all spheres of life. Through “Her activism, her legislative work and her unwavering commitment, Adriana has fought for the rights of all and for all. She has been a tireless voice in defense of the most vulnerable, those who are often invisibilities or silenced by power structures,” he remarked.
