Argentina to celebrate 30 years of democracy

Argentina readies to celebrate its 30 years of continuos democracy on Tuesday with a rally to be held at the Bicentennial museum. The Kirchnerite administration invited former presidents to take part in the ceremony.

There will be also a rally at the main square with singers and bands playing but it has not been confirmed if President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will be addressing the crowd at Plaza de Mayo main square.

On December 30, 1983, then president Ricardo Alfonsín took office after seven years of dictatorship. Since then, Argentina — which had previously suffered six military coups — has been a democratic country.

Official sources yesterday confirmed that the Kirchnerite administration had invited former presidents Carlos Menem, Fernando de la Rúa, Adolfo Rodríguez Saá and late former president Alfonsín’s relatives. Fernández de Kirchner will be meeting them at the Bicentennial museum at 6pm, where she will be delivering the main speech.Simultaneously, a rally will be held at the main square with the slogan “Democracy forever.” Several artists have confirmed their presence at the event, which is scheduled to be starting at 3pm. Singers León Gieco, Víctor Heredia and Adriana Varela will be taking part in the concert. Musician Gustavo Santaolalla will be joining them.
