Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner attended the religious ceremony Te Deum in Bariloche to comemorate the 202 anniversary of the May revolution. The commemoration was celebrated at the Cathedral Nuestra Señora del Nahuel Huapi.
Cristina spoke of how the Kirchnerite government has “given patriotism back to Argentines”. Cristina also told about her experiences a week ago in Angola. The President recalled that the independence war in Argentina was waged to a large extent by soldiers who were black slaves coming from Angola. “Angola is a wonderful country that is being reconstructed after a cruel civil war”, she recalled.
“It is a matter of pride Argentina was the first Latin American country to abolish slavery in 1813”. “We are now faced with the most important process of growth in our 202 years of history. This recovery of our hydrocarbons sovereignty was one our great present goals, alongside the unity of all the Argentine people”, Cristina said.
“We have to agree on items that are beyond discussion, and that is why I thank the opposition, for having supported the expropriation of YPF”, added the President.
“Many transformations are yet pending, but we have had nine years of uninterrupted growth, and it is up to the intelligence of all the social actors the responsibility of taking good care of this process”, said Cristina. “We must learn to push History in the right direction, that of transformations”, she stated.
