200 Days is Enough! Free Milagro Sala!

Human rights groups have named Milagro Sala the "first political prisoner" of the Mauricio Macri administration.

Milagro Sala was arrested on January 16 after staging a sit-in outside the local government office of Jujuy to reject the reorganization of subsidies to cooperatives.

In this photographic series—We Are All Milagro Sala—the "Poetas Peronistas," an Argentine artists collective, calls for her immediate release.
