It was a wonderful packed meeting, but before it started we were informed of this scandalous intervention by the Argentinian Embassy.

#CartaGate

In a letter sent to our host’s Director, they criticise the content of Nora’s talk and deny the forced disappearance of Santiago. The letter subsequently went viral in Argentina and received extensive media coverage. It became know as #TheCambridgePapers #CartaGate
