Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner posted on social networks a photo of the National Congress illuminated with the colors of the Argentine flag, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of the Gesta de Malvinas, which will be commemorated this Saturday throughout the country with various activities.
“Now the Congress of the Nation, illuminated with the colors of the Homeland, accompanying the vigil on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Malvinas,” wrote the head of the Senate of the Nation on her official account on the social network Twitter, and accompanied that message of two photos that show the Congress illuminated in blue and white from different angles.
Under the slogan “Malvinas unites us”, the national government will carry out a series of events throughout the country to remember the 40 years of the war, honor the fallen and veterans, and reaffirm the sovereign right over the islands.
