CLAMOR (Committee for the Defense of Human Rights in the Countries of the Southern Cone) was active between 1978 and 1991. CLAMOR is a closed fond, consisting of documents produced and accumulated during the existence of the Committee. It is recognized as one of the most important organizations which offered practical solidarity to political refugees fleeing the dictatorships of the Southern Cone of South America and to the families of prisoners and the forcibly disappeared in those countries. It became an important vehicle for denouncing human rights crimes and providing information on the situation.
