CFK calls for 'national unity' in May Revolution celebrations

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner today addressed the crowd which had gathered in the historic Plaza de Mayo to mark the anniversary of Argentina's May Revolution, calling on those present to remember all the people who helped create an independent nation.

Cristina also launched a plea for "national unity... with clear ideas and without agression" during her speech, which was transmitted across Argentina via a national broadcast.

The head of state spoke in front of Government House accompanied by her cabinet of ministers, as the iconic City square heaved with thousands of militants in attendance to celebrate the landmark date.

"Here we are once more in this historic square which belongs to all Argentines, to celebrate a new anniversary for the nation," CFK affirmed in her speech, adding that "without the people, there can be no revolution."

"I want to focus on this word, revolution and May, because when we remember May 25 we only do so remembering a handful of patriots. But we forget the people, because the efforts of a handful of men do not build a nation; they can only do so accompanied by the people."
