Activist’s Body Found – level 1

02-11-2017 07:00

In Argentina, an activist disappears. This happens in August. It happens during a protest. The protest supports a native leader. The protesters also want the native lands back.

Last Tuesday, people find the activist’s body. Some people think that the police are hiding what happened. They say that the government does not care. The police say that they did nothing.

Difficult words: activist (a person who does what they think or say), disappear (when you disappear, nobody knows where you are and if you are OK), support (show that you believe in something), native (a person who is from a place; in Argentina, this is a person from South America and not from Europe).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
