Commemorative events and ceremonies were scheduled to be held today, on the 30th anniversary of the Malvinas War. The main event in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, will be led by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
The President will give a televised speech today at midday at the Islas Malvinas square, alongside a monument representing the map of the islands and near a cenotaph with the names of those killed in combat.
Part of the ceremony will include the annual replacement of the Argentine flag flown from the square. The new flag will be provided by the ANSeS social security agency.
Vice-President Amado Boudou will participate in a similar ceremony in Río Grande, also in Tierra del Fuego, alongside Cabinet ministers including Interior Minister Florencio Randazzo and Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman.
The President will deliver a speech at midday at the cenotaph in the recently expanded Islas Malvinas square. The ceremony will pay tribute to the 649 Argentines who died during the war and all combatants.

Windows of the World believes that the auto determination is granted for natives not for people who don’t belong to a place. Therefore Malvinas Islands are Argentine. Peace to everyone involved in the war. May God bless them.
