19 years is not a huge stretch of time.
Tell that to East Germans who lived in Berlin in 1988 compared to 2007.

Or Blacks in South Africa in 1991 compared to 2010.

Or Gays in the USA in 1997 compared to 2016.

Not Quite, add Canada. The Catholic Residential Schools for indigenous Children were closed in 1990? The Pope was on his knees to ask forgiveness from Canadian indigenous people for the abuses perpetrated on more than 150.000 children since the XIX century.



But were the Canadian schools practicing actual genocide up until 1990? If so, I'm open to being educated.

And this is terribly different from the genocide of indigenous people in other countries?
Whenever these discussions popup you always see people arguing in bad faith. "But what about the Americans, Chinese, Germans, apartheid...". That is very disingenuous. You absolve those who did these terrible acts by spouting "what about X or Y". This contributes no value to the discussion and only looks to divert the attention elsewhere.

On the point of the thread: It is good to acknowledge the crimninal and cruel acts of the past but without proper representation, education and preservation of culture these words are meaningless. As another person in this thread has mentioned before without real tangible changes to society (like what we see in Bolivia) the indigenous communities will continue to be ignored in Argentina.

Genocide refers to poor living conditions, lack of medical care and sex abuse. The Church looking the other way , being an accomplice to crimes.

When was the Last day an abuse was perpetrated ? Only God knows..!
