Martin Almada: « The Condor is still flying, we must cut off its wings »

“I was tortured by the Argentine, Brazilian, Bolivian, Chilean, Uruguayan and Paraguayan militaries. What did they want to know ? My connections to « subversive » people in Chile. In my thesis I denounced the massive control, the massive control and the massive spying the Americans did in Paraguay. So the military arrived at the conclusion that I was an « intellectual terrorist ».” Between October 12 and 14, Martin Almada, lawyer and recipient of the alternative Nobel Peace Prize, was in France to take part in an international colloquium on the archives of the Latin American dictatorships of the 1970s. He was kind enough to grant an exclusive interview to Investig’Action, where he talks about the creation of Operation Condor. He also explains why it’s essential for people to remember this « nuclear bomb dropped in Latin America ».
