De Negri is a Chilean union organizer, human rights activist, and social worker. She survived disappearance in a concentration camp, torture, and imprisonment during the Pinochet dictatorship. In 1986, De Negri’s son, Rodrigo, was murdered by 33 military men while documenting a demonstration. A recent ruling by the court of appeals of Chile has ruled against 13 perpetrators. De Negri’s search for justice has made her a symbol for the Chilean youth and human rights advocates all over the world.
