Santiago Maldonado: Macri's 1st Disappeared

Santiago Maldonado was last seen during an Argentine military police eviction operation against the Pu Lof Mapuche community in the Chubut department of Cushamen on Aug. 1. Witnesses say they saw the police shove the 28-year-old into a van and drive away.

The relatives of the activist have said he was forcibly disappeared by agents of the state and demand his immediate return.

Human rights organizations, both nationally and internationally, accuse the government of Mauricio Macri of allowing the police to forcibly remove Maldonado, but the government denies involvement.

Family members say they don't believe Santiago is dead, as some officials have told them, and say that all of society has the right to know the truth about what happened to the young man.
