Summary from the article Cuerpo: Protesting Political Violence and Repression with Music

Mariano Ferreyra, a young Argentine student, was tragically shot and killed on 20th October 2010 in a protest involving railway workers of the Railway Union (UF). His murder led to widespread protests throughout Argentina and his story has become a symbol of workers’ struggles and human rights abuses. The idea behind ‘Cuerpo’, a new album dedicated to Ferreyra, came from his cousin, Aitor Graña (on the photo with Alice Luna). The reason behind this? “We believe that [the state] holds some responsibility in the case and it would be hypocritical to accept financial support from them,” says the radio station. Each track is by a different artist or band, with names such as Manu Chao, Vicentico, Las Pastillas del Abuelo, and Gabo Ferro making an appearance.
