On Friday night, friends and family of the 44 crew members marched to demand the government "continue the search." 

After a month of unsuccessfully searching for the ARA San Juan submarine, Argentine Defense Minister Oscar Aguad placed Admiral Jorge Srur, former Navy chief, in retirement.

The ARA San Juan submarine disappeared off the South Atlantic coast on Nov. 15 with 44 crew members on board. 

This week, family members met with Argentine legislators. In the meeting, they agreed the search will remain active and decided to form a bicameral commission to investigate what happened.  

On Friday night, friends and family of the 44 crew members marched in Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata to demand the government "continue the search." 

The Navy has received much criticism over how it has handled the disappearance. Jessica Medina, sister to one of the crew members said, “We all feel they are hiding things from us. The Navy has practically tortured us with this situation they have made us lived."

The international search continues in the area where a loud sound, which signals a possible explosion, was recorded.

A month after the disappearance, family members remain hopeful.
