Bicentenario: Argentina celebrates 200 years of independence
On May 25th, 2010, Argentina marked 200 years since the 1810 May Revolution. That date commemorates the movement that led to Argentina breaking away from imperial Spain and separated itself from the Spanish monarchy.
What today is commonly referred as the Independence of Argentina was declared on July 9, 1816 by the Congress of Tucumán. In reality, the congressmen that were assembled in Tucumán declared the independence of the United Provinces of South America, which is still today one of the legal names of the Argentine Republic.
The Argentine Ambassador in Germany Luis María Kreckler invited "StRATEGy" members to the official ceremony to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Argentines independence together with politicians, diplomats, and research delegations who share a close collaboration between Argentina and Germany.
