With police violence and impunity being a persistent problem in post-authoritarian Argentine society, the family members of victims of police violence began to denounce such human rights violations publicly. The core motive for the family members is that they fear that otherwise their relative’s death will be nothing more than a vague memory. What they want instead is justice, the end to police violence and impunity and social and political changes in society at large. Therefore, since the 1990s, they started to mobilize, organize and denounce the Argentine state in general, and the police, the judiciary, the government and individual representatives in particular. All of this activity gradually led to the emergence of the Movimiento del Dolor, an anti-violence movement of family members of victims of police violence protesting against the human rights abuses of the police and demanding respect for citizenship rights in democratic Argentina
