Falklands’ referendum, a “democratic and incontestable” answer to Argentina’s ambitions

The Falkland Islands elected government has confirmed the dates and final wording of the referendum on the political status of the Islands, based on their right to self determination and to counter Argentina’s repeated calls for negotiations over sovereignty.

“The result will demonstrate in a clear, democratic and incontestable way how the people of the Falkland Islands wish to live their lives”, says the release which anticipates the presence of “a credible, international and independent observer mission to observe the referendum in order to clearly demonstrate that it has been held freely and fairly”.

Following a two-week public consultation, and having taken outside expert advice on the specific wording to be asked in the Referendum, the Falklands’ Executive Council have approved the final wording of the question, which, along with an explanatory preamble, reads as follows:

“The current political status of the Falkland Islands is that they are an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom. The Islands are internally self-governing, with the United Kingdom being responsible for matters including defence and foreign affairs. Under the Falkland Islands Constitution the people of the Falkland Islands have the right to self-determination, which they can exercise at any time. Given that Argentina is calling for negotiations over the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands, this referendum is being undertaken to consult the people regarding their views on the political status of the Falkland Islands. Should the majority of votes cast be against the current status, the Falkland Islands Government will undertake necessary consultation and preparatory work in order to conduct a further referendum on alternative options.

Do you wish the Falkland Islands to retain their current political status as an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom?
YES or NO”

The Executive Council has also agreed that the Referendum would be held over two days, 10-11 March, giving everyone the maximum opportunity to exercise their right to vote.

The result will demonstrate in a clear, democratic and incontestable way how the people of the Falkland Islands wish to live their lives. To that end, the Falkland Islands Government has consulted widely to identify a credible, international and independent observer mission to observe the referendum in order to clearly demonstrate that it has been held freely and fairly.

@1 I think the likelihood of an argentine boat full of the la hitler campora youth sailing 300 miles to the falklands is low.

I'm pretty sure the UN will have to accept that this referendum has taken place, because of their clause about 'free association' with another state. The C24 will carry on ignoring the wishes of any of the islanders though without actually having visited them.

I'm pretty sure that Brazil and Uruguay will claim it's an illegal referendum because the falklands is an implanted population, without providing a jot of evidence to say why they think it's an implanted population, because quite frankly they don't know. Then they'll sign some papers about it.

The Argies will still carry on demanding negotiations, then demanding it's undeniably theirs, then saying they just want to chat, then saying the falklanders should all be genocided, and this time the UK will have a definite answer to throw back at them.

Not much will change though.

What convoluted and particular logic of the British hypocrites. They occupy a territory outside its British Isles (Europe) and ask themselves if they want to continue living as British occupiers. Hard to understand this “nonsense” common.
Thieves will occupy the yard of your house and ask themselves if they want to keep the loot instead of depend on the authority of the owner of the house.
It would be like if Argentines they occupy and expel authorities Man island and then ask themselves if they want to remain Argentines having nothing to do with the authority of London.
Of course the “british” argue that were not Argentines at the time of theft, but that is against the historical evidence.

Here's a real “Malvina” Argentine born in Puerto Soledad long before the very few remaining Britons who claim a lineage “ancient” in the Malvinas Argentines Islands.
A valid test that were our for right own long before, so that a search in these conditions, is invalidated.

@4 The British are and always have been an Atlantic nation, there are many islands representing such britishness all over the atlantic from bermuda all the way down the atlantic ridge and then some at the bottom. It's you who seems to struggle with the idea of unity through similar island nation experiences.

The Atlantic is not your yard, we were in it a long time before you were ever conceived of in South America by killing all your brown folk.

We have the objective history to back up our claims, and when you started the War of Aggression in 1982 against the demands of the UN, you lost any claim you have to the islands under international law.

The falklands really are a case of 'finders keepers, losers weepers' and boy oh boy do you losers weep.

So the British are occupying the garden illegally of a house which has residing in the legitimate Argentines.
Yes, just a few problems with that.
1 The Falklands were a British territory before Argentina existed.
2 So the British took up residence in the garden before the current occupants lived in the house.
3 The current occupants of the house murdered the original owner of the house in order that they could live in the said house, when the British were already living happily and peacefully in the garden and didn't murder anyone.

The Referendum splats some of the rhetoric that argentina has spread claiming the populus is held at gunpoint. Of course the last time that happened was when argentina invaded.

Islanders will only want to become argentine when it suits them and not when some gormless president and her follows demand.

With yet more UN recognition in its cap, the falklands will become untouchable (as it always will be).

So he is one of those ''Thieves! Pirates!'' you and your ilk keep posting about? He must be, unless he is a descendent of the indigenous tribes.

By the way, the Falkland Islands belong to the Falkland Islanders. Their British Overseas Territory status is there because those people whose islands they are, wish to have a connection with the UK. They might have liked to have had closer ties to Argentina instead. However, 1982 and CFK's attitude towards the Islanders have rather spoiled that.

The problem the FI's face is that CFK is trying to secure her legacy; the unhinged crone now knows that her policies have directly lead to the miserable failed state her country finds itself in. Without a big win - and it needs to be very big to offset the litany of disasters she's caused - she will be forever remembered as the one who singularly and spectacularly fvcked things up. The only thing big enough to qualify is complete control of the FI, hence her bring it up at the opening of an envelope, hence the mood swings (a sign of deep stress).

Two points in case, the Referendum is being held at the instigation of David CAMERON and the British. False, the Referendum is the Islanders answer to Argentinas UN tactics.
The UN will not recognise the result of the Referendum because the population are implanted colonists. False again, Ban Ki Moon, himself has come out and stated that the Right to Self Determination exists for all people.

Hi, First time poster, although I have been following the site for quite a while.
I thought I finally had to add something after nobody seemed to comment on the great link that #4 Malvinero put up.
For any that didn’t bother looking, it clearly indicated that proto-Argentina/Vernet knew that the claims via Spanish inheritance and Jewett’s landing lacked any substance.
Also, the diary entry (when viewed alongside the British-issued papers for Vernet and his workers to live on the islands, and his correspondence with the UK post-1833) show Vernet to be a deceitful man, and if not for that deceit clearly he would have been removed from the Falklands as Swiftly as the Garrison in 1833.
Someone needs to get a copy of this diary before they realise this strengthens the Falklander’s case.

There is no historical evidence that Louis Vernet ever became a citizen of las Provincias Unidas, Furthermore, there is much doubt about his place of birth - he could't have been a German because in the late eighteenth and early eighteenth centuries what is today Germany then consisted of several principalities and city states. There is some evidence that he was from Alsace-Lorraine or even from France itself.

Get your facts right!

The Yahoo article isn't the half of it.

At the C24 in June 2012, with CFK leading in a person an Argentine delegation of 90+ ministers, provincial governors. mayors, trade union leaders, etc, grandson Marcello Luis Vernet read copiously from the diary, and even quoted in written testimony the passage wherein Vernet decides to claim the Falklands for Argentina in 1829.

Not one of the ninety seems to have noticed, and Marcello's highly public undermining of the whole basis of the Argentine sovereignity claim is now firmly lodged in the records of the C24, and indeed freely available on the web site of the Argentine ambassador to the UN.

Please commander, could we have some crumbs? I promise we'll become suberviant and shut our mouthes if you would only give us some crumbs.

Commander my arse. The first thing you've got to do to be a good commander is command respect. There's an old saying: You can't please all the people all the time. The great naval commander royal navy retired couldn't please anybody (Argie, Brit or Falkland Islander) ANY of the time. At least the Malvinistas have ditched the pitch now; it never worked and I almost agonised for them for how long they tried to keep it up.

@60/66: Putting Argentina's kettle logic argument for its sovereignty claim & dispute to one side for now, what disturbs me greatly is the systematic use of the phrase “transplanted population” to distinguish the present day population of the Falkland Islanders by the Argentina in its official submission to the UN C24

Argentina systematically conducts a campaign of political & economic persecution against the regional ethnic minority of the Falkland Islanders who are subject to repression of their political & economic development

Argentine authorities deliberately incite hatred against the Islanders labeling them implants, squatters, sheep-farmers, kelpers & pirates in deliberate targeted acts to dehumanize them as a collective group in a calculated effort to secure their regional ostracism through repression of transport & trade links & normal relations. The Argentine authorities deliberately scapegoat the Falkland Islander home & abroad to justify their hostile acts against them using the big lie propaganda technique & rhetoric of past dictatorships to further their political goals

The Argentine justification for doing this appears to be based on a fallacious argument that somehow the people living in the non-self-governing territory of the Falkland Islands today must be punished for actions of the British government to assert its sovereignty in the Falklands when it was first challenged by the government of Buenos Aires in 1829

It appears the Argentine government's political argument against the present-day Islanders rights is based on medieval concept in law of 'corruption of blood” which warrants extra-judicial punishment by forfeiture of their human rights under international law & property rights through illegal expropriation & escheatment to the Argentine state by their forced deportation to Britain

Argentine should ends its extra-judicial persecution of the current population the Islands & confine itself to pursuing its claim legally at the UN ICJ

@61 Who cares about the opinion of squatters and pirates?

You do.

Vernet the pirate is well documented, and the #4 link you posted shows him as a squatter too. Any document issued to him by the British that allowed him to reside on the Falklands would have been void had he been honest about his intentions with the British.

@66 Thanks for that link. I had heard this before, but without finding any evidence I had discounted it. The piece you link is clearly stonger than Malvineros link in showing Argentine acceptance of this diary.

When some Britons write that theFalkland Isands will be British forever I cannot help thinking of the empires that were supposed to have lasted “forever”. Think of the Persians, Greeks, Romans, the Golden Horde, 1000 year Reich etc. The world we live in is changing rapidly but I would not like to see Falklands falling under the heel of the botox queen and her venal lackeys.

Britain will not be able to support the Falklands indefinitely. Mrs Thatcher, the milk snatcher, let down her kith and kin in Rhodesia and a previous government saw to the dissolution of the Central African Federation. So I would say to the Falklanders: “Put notyour trust in princes nor in the son of man.....”.

You are absolutely right of course; nothing lasts forever. I'd like to think that both the UK and the Falklands will agree on moving towards cutting the umbilocal cord in a balanced way. Like a couple that just start to grow apart. No doubt the UK won't always be able to justify the expense but no doubt we'll one day be able to afford it ourselves. I doubt there'll be any radical or sudden cutting of the status quo. It will just evolve.

One thing that is absolutely constant in our world is change. One day Argentina may become a stable and mature nation. One day.

I never understood why it matters who “owned” those little islands first. What matters is who owns them now, and from what I can see, Argentina doesn't. Argentina has tried to take them back but failed thus they still don't own it. They can try again if they like to and will most likely fail again.

If Argentina wants to claim their right to those islands, then Paraguay should be returned the lands conquered during the Triple Alliance War. But that will never happen. And note how Paraguay accepts it got the shit kicked out of it and makes no claim to its lost territory. When you lose, well you don't get to come out ahead.

So to sum it all up, if Argentina wants to claim it, go and invade again. Or else they need to shut the hell up and get on with destroying their country's economy already

A further comment about Louis Vernet - after his business failed in the Falkland Islands during the 1840s he travelled to London and made several efforts to persuade the British Government to cover his losses alleging that as he had set up his business based on the approval and support that he received from the British Consul in Buenos Aires then Britain should pay him some sort of indemnity. He did, in fact, receive some sort of compensation but it was derisory.

106 PH

It's quite a while since I read one of your posts because they are so full of crap but let's have a look at this post more closely.

“Vritish slaves of fakland holding firm have no say in Argentina,”
There are no slaves in the Falklands. Everyone is here of their own free will and everyone who works gets paid reasonable wages commensurate with their skills.
We don't want any say in Argentina so that's fine by us.

“they all have to go home one way or another,”
I agree. I usually drive, sometimes ride by push bike or, if I've had a few, I walk.

“or else I will have to claim my gold mine in San Juan illegally occupied by barrick gold,”
Go right ahead.

“end the theft of Argentine resources,”
That sounds like an internal Argentine issue. I suggest you speak to CFK (actually that may be a conflict of interest for her).

“pari pasuu for all or justice for none,”
Again, that's an internal Argentine issue but I agree. Your government should have to pay everyone like te courts have ruled.

“white people think they can tell others what to do but I say execute all outside terrorists thefting resources from your land.”
Black and white people think they can tell others what to do. Especially if they are leaders or managers. What's your point? A racist one? Be careful, Argentina is full of white people. Thnaks for your advice. If anyone tries to theft our resources we'll consider your advice when we convict them.

“Islands Malvinas Argentina is not negotiable,”
That's fine, we don't want your Islands Malvinas. The Falkland Islands sovereignty isn't negotiable either. How many people live on your Islands Malvinas? We have about 3,000 living on the Falkland Islands.

“we support a nuclear defence program 100% made Argentina to end the illegal occupation and theft by vritish illegal aliens.”
Who is we?

“Long live CFK down with the nuclear armed terrorist and thieves from UK.”
Why would CFK want to live down with the nuclear armed terrorists and thieves from the UK?

Just to explain the origin of 'vritish'.

In Uruguay and I suppose AG, when speaking Spanish the A is an E, E is an A, i is an 'ee', V is a B, the B is a B, and LL is pronounced SSHH and Y is also a SSHH.

So Devoto the supermercado (supermarket) is usually pronounced 'Deboto' though some visitors use the v as a v.

Playa (the beach) is plasshha, llamar (to call) sshhamar, etc.

So Vritish is really British. Vargas of course, is Bargas when pronounced.

The UN principle and concept of Territorial Integrity & National Unity & disruption thereof applies the the borders of member states as extant on 24th October 1945 when the UN Treaty came into force

Applying the principle of Territorial Integrity to the Question of the Falkland Islands, would refer to the succession of the Falklands Islands & its effect on British territorial integrity and British national unity

Since the British first colonised Port Egmont in 1765, asserted their sovereignty rights through diplomatic protest at the critical date of 1829 when the sovereignty dispute first arose & since 1833 have exercised de facto sovereignty over the Falkland Islands for more than 180 years, received acquiesence from both Argentina in 1850 & Spain in 1865 & also defended the territory from Argentine invasion in 1982 and retained sovereignty under the international principle of uti possidetis having been victorious at the end of the conflict it is easy to see the British could be materially affected by the self-determination of the population and independence of the Falkland Islands

The population has no connection to Argentina and the Falkland Islands territory has never been under sole Argentine sovereignty, whilst the lands under the control of the Buenos Aires revolutionary government did not extend further than the 37th parallel south some 900 nautical miles north of the Falkland Islands

In these circumstances, it is not clear how the modern state of Argentina can possibly claim & prove any form of disruption to either its national unity or territorial integrity at the UN International Court of Justice

Until Argentina proves or disproves its claim at the UN ICJ, there is no legal impediment for the population who live on the listed non-self-governing territory of the Falkland Islands to continue with self-determination

Argentina terminated the negotiations under UN resolution 2065, but is free to accept FIG's UN C24 offer to enter talks in June 2012

Another red herring is the Argentine claim that the UN Special Fourth Political and Decolonisation Committee can in any way make legitimate political statements on individual cases, or hear petitions, or decide any dispute outside the implementation of Article 73 in accordance with resolution 1514. This is not so, rather its terms of reference are determined by resolution 1654 which is to examine the application of the Declaration on the granting of independence to colonial countries and peoples contained in its resolution 151 , to make suggestions and recommendations on the progress and extent of the implementation of the Declaration, and to report to the General Assembly

Under its UN treaty obligations, the UK must implement Article 73 requirement in the listed non-self-governing territories under its administration, including the case of the Falkland Islands, to develop self-government, to take due account of the political aspirations of the peoples, & to assist them in the progressive development of their free political institutions, according to the particular circumstances of each territory

The fact is under the UN treaty regarding the Pacific Settlement of Disputes, Article 36 clearly states that legal disputes should as a general rule be referred by the parties to the International Court of Justice in accordance with the provisions of the Statute of the Court . All UN member states agree to Article 103 that in the event of a conflict between the obligations of the Members of the United Nations under the present Charter & their obligations under any other international agreement, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail

Thus Argentina can obtain either an advisory or binding judgement on the Question of Falkland Islands regarding retroactive application of the UN Treaty to the historical Sovereignty dispute or its contemporary political aim to deny the population of the Falklands self-determination & seek their forced deportation

121 briton........Wise words?

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day.
He inquired of God, “Where have you been?”
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “Look Michael, look what I've made.”
Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, “What is it?”
“It's a planet,” replied God, “and I've put LIFE on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place of great balance.”
“Balance?” inquired Michael, still confused.
God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth, “For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while Southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot. Over there I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people,”
God continued, pointing to different countries. “This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”
The Archangel, impressed by Gods work, then pointed to a small group of Islands in one corner and asked, “What's that one?”
“Ah,” said God. “That's The Falkland Islands, the most glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers, streams and an exquisite coastline. The people from The Falkland’s are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they're going to be found travelling the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hard working and high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace”.
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed; ”What about balance, God? You said there will be BALANCE!“
God replied wisely. ”Wait until you see the loud-mouth Wankers I'm putting next door to them in Argentina....”

You have boasted many times that you live in Canada, now you cryptically say you live in 'America', what's that? Do you mean the continent of North America, in a region governed by a state called Canada??
Oh, you say you don't know anything about ”Canuda“???

”I don't even know what canuda is, is it another facist racist culture murderers of natives and ?“

Well if you are Argentinian and ”love CFK 140%“ as you say, you would certainly be aware that YOU are a member of a ”fascist racist culture murderers of natives and ?” currently ongoing, today.
Since you live in Canada, you would also recognise that it is certainly NOT a fascist or racist state ( witness the rich multiculturalism). The Aboriginal people's question is openly debated by government and media and hundreds of millions of $$$ 's allotted to native groups each year for their own discretionary spending, as well as tax breaks, free education, etc etc.
Argentina allows her natives to die of Dengue or police murder them, outright.

We know that “Pirat-Hunter” is really ALEX VARGAS from Canada, you used to post the same hatred under your real name - moron!!

So, basically he's suggesting that: a) Argentinians (settlers, no?) having a referendum is an affront to intelligence and international law; b) falkland islanders are all internet hackers.

Current president Obama has even been seen to be untypically pro-argentine, with some theories existing about them wanting to throw the relationship with the British to the wolves, in exchange for 'good boy' foreign policy credits in South America.

With this in mind, the current strategy of quiet diplomacy in Latin america is probably the best way forwards for the UK. At least we want to trade with them, unlike the Argies.

@150 the ugly truth is that the Argentine's official statement is simply a lie to serve their state propaganda

It appears South American states endorse bigotry against regional ethnic minorities of non-hispanic origin as an acceptable norm in South America

It is disturbing and offensive that the Argentine state calculates to disenfranchise the Falkland Islanders and that the Argentine people have been indoctrinated by the Argentine state to prefer the ethnic cleansing of the Falkland Islands of any one of British ancestry, to strip these people of their cultural identity and to carry out their forced deportation to Britain, without regard to whether the people were born their or have been immigrants for many years and all would prefer to see that the Islanders lose their home, their possessions, livelihoods, community and way of life, irrespective of the supposed protection of the 1994 Argentine Constitution

It is worse still that South American states collude with Argentina in their odious aim, promoting their own narrow interests and perverting the just principles of the UN Charter

No, Mr Argentine official, the truth of the matter is that it is the Argentine state political and economic persecution of the Falkland Islanders that is an affront to intelligence, and a crime in nation and international law for which the Argentine state and its misguided allies are accountable

The only thing that will satisfy the rest of the world, and force Argentina to drop its claims, is for The Falklands to become a fully independent nation with a seat in the UN.
I get that the Islanders may not feel ready for that and indeed may not want that, but it would shut Argentina up for ever. Between UK and the Falklands however with Special Relationship Treaties in place it can be business as usual for as long as the Islanders want it: Queen still Head of State; Can even keep the flag as it is (Fiji did). In other words our relationship can be as it is now; but to the outside world The Falklands Sovereignty claim would be ended.

The only 'immediate' way to stop the Argentines is to either get Brazil to sit on them economically, or to defeat them in war so routinesly and so significantly that the pavlovian effect is to make them cringe at the idea of another war about the falklands.

... or just ignore them and wait for their society to implode.

I believe Ted is right full independence is the solution, the FIG need to make it clear at EVERY opportunity that full independence is the future goal, even if it doesn't happen for another 100+ years. It would help the islanders cause greatly. Most people don't realise its an option! As we all know without Britain in Argentina's sovereignty argument they don't have one.

@193 Shed-time
The FI is much higher profile than Belize, Argentina would have to drop their claim, they wouldn't have a choice. The other South American countries have nothing against the people of the FI and look forward to the day Argentina quits whining.

@194 Not a naïve thought at all. The purpose of the referendum is to remind the stakeholders that this is a human issue, that people actually live on these islands and have done for longer than Argentina has existed. This isn't going to change a lot of minds in South America, because they're firmly in the belief that there is some kind of moral hierarchy amongst their nations, with Venezuela firmly seated at the top.

They all support Venezuela with regards to it demanding 2/3 of Guyana (as if no one lives there) and half of the Caribbean (as if no one lives there), they all support Argentina with its demands to own everything in the South Atlantic (as if no one lives there). Challenging the voice of Venezuela or its pet Argentina is unheard of in Latin america, as they prefer to look like they're political dead fish.

So, no... not naïve.

@195 They have nothing against the peoples of the Falkland islands, just as they have nothing against the people of Guyana or Belize... but if the belligerent power stole what it wanted, they'd essentially look to their leader Venezuela for moral guidance on what they should do.

Then the head of the Peruvian people would get more medals for supporting a war that was started by a junta that no one supported, even though they were all out in the streets in celebration and support. Hmm...

@196 The traditionalist viewpoint typically follows the 'history favours the winner' stand, the revisionist viewpoint typically follows the 'sore loser' standpoint, and the post-revisionist typically tries to find some kind of objective truth, with discussed biases of course.

My issue with the paper is simply that it is badly-written uncited dross. Whosoever wrote it has clearly never engaged in any kind of academic activity above the age of 16, as it would get a fail at GCSE

@190, Nah.... Being an internationally recognized independent state will not deter Argentina's fascist claims. It didn't work for Tibet, East Timor (naturally causing Indonesia to be sympathetic to its fellow failed invader), Cyprus, Kuwait (who we are told here was invaded by a country that is on equal moral footing w.r.t. victimhood as Poland in WW2, good one there TTT/Tobias/Nostradamus the 0th, keep that whataboutery going even to defend things that you pretend to oppose to give yourself an “edge”!) and all the various sundry and not so sundry border disputes that have existed since the founding of the UN (just to use a date-time stamp that is likewise internationally recognized). So many to chose from including quite a few in LATAM. Nor does any defacto state of independence help the ROC (Taiwan) from even getting full diplomatic status and don't get me started with either Israel or the PA which don't recognize even each others right to exist, let alone their respective allies.

No the only thing that's going to get AR off the FI's back is for a majority of Argentine to put in an adult and responsible government that understands that AR will be far better off with the FI as a prosperous neighbor, trading partner and a mutually collegial, if not 100% friendly neighbor, rather than a Emmanuel Goldstein to distract from domestic problems when things go pear-shaped at home whenever they need a two-minute hate.

What it WILL do is take them off the C24 list (and if it doesn't then the C24 isn't even the joke that it is now). And that's about it. And even there some of the idiot Campora and Malvanistas won't even recognize Commonwealth countries as sovereign -- so their Sudetenland will always belong to the Fatherland, and they promise, they will be nice to the “pirats” and “squatters” or whatever they call the untermensch who have lived there since before the pure and perfect Argentines were Argentine.

David, queres presentar un caso de uti possidetis con el tratado Arana-Southern, el cual no tiene nada que ver con Malvinas, colocando a las islas como territorio de conquista, lo irónico es que según ustedes no es un botín de guerra, y solo basta remontarse a Parish que en 1831 al elevar la protesta formal a Guido habla de los derechos de soberanía de su majestad Británica.
¿Entendes el significado implícito de lo que estas citando?
Nada más ni nada menos estas diciendo que el titulo presentado por Gran Bretaña en la ocupación de las islas es simplemente la conquista y el uso de la fuerza sobre el vencido.
También me gustaría saber y dado que es el punto central de lo que planteas ¿que tiene que ver el conflicto que dio origen al bloqueo anglo-francés con las islas?
Porque las islas no fueron la causa o parte del bloqueo como ni siquiera estaban en manos argentinas para ser usurpadas por la infantería de marina británica en ese tiempo.
Estaban ocupadas por los británicos desde 1833 ¿o no?
¿Qué tratado de paz se firmo por la ocupación británica de las islas Malvinas?
Te recuerdo que ya el 17 de junio de ese año Manuel Moreno presento una protesta escrita en idioma ingles y francés, y otra el 29 de diciembre de 1834.
Vuelvo a preguntar ¿cuando se firmo un tratado por las islas?
Explica Rudolf Dolzer:
“Los británicos se fueron de las islas en 1774 y dejaron una placa diciendo que eran propias. Pero no regresaron hasta 1833 y recién hicieron su primer reclamo en 1828.
Los argentinos estaban entonces en el terreno, reclamando las islas jurídica y físicamente. Según la teoría del siglo XIX, estaba permitido el uso de la fuerza pero el hecho de que hayan dejado una placa, no les da derechos, sobre el territorio a los británicos, después de haberlo abandonado.

The chair of the decolonizaton committee considered this refedendum like a politic ploy of the the u. k., so, i don't think it changes it's considerations regarding this cause, after the result of that so called referendum.
There is something that the islanders will have to understand someday, if the u. n has never asked the u. k. to return the islands to arg., and although that institution has never invoked the right to self determination for this cause, like it did for others colonial situations, or although the case has always been considered like a special colonial situation by the u. n., and never included the islanders as a third part of the conflict, due to all the resolutions just asked arg. and the u. k. to resume the negotiations in order to find a solution for this cause, in fact, if you get into the website of the u. n., you won't find any resolution which says, application of the right to self determination for the population from the malvinas-falkland islands, like there are for most cases of populations who live in territories which are non-self governing territories.
Despite all these considerations, if the u. n has never asked the u. k. to return the islands to arg., it means that in some way, the wishes of the islanders must be taken into account, and i have always supported it.
In fact, although the u. k. decides to resume the dialogue with arg. for the sovereignty of the islands, if the islanders manifest that they want to remain under british govt., arg. won't be able to force them to accept our sovereignty only.

The decolonisation process is between the administering state and the administered territory. This process has got nothing to do with vulturous greedy hitlerist states wanting more land, and the whole decolonisation process was started by self-determination of peoples, and ends when the falkland islanders choose to be a BOT through 'free association' as laid out by the UN.

Any 'secret' proposals ended when you took negotiations to military action and started the highly popular War of Aggression in 1982. Losing this war meant that you lost any claims to the islands under international law.

Unlike Pascoe and Pepper, who had access to official documents in Argentina and Spain, the author apparently never bothered to research historical documents in the UK - his work it totally irrelevant whilst that of Pascoe and Pepper is well researched and could be used in a court of law.

Pascoe and Pepper have never been discredited every thing is properly cited. If you want to tilt at them you have to be specific. Vagaries and humble opinions don't count. Now you want to run that 1850 Convention of Settlement argument by me, because I have at least eight historical legal experts that say with its signing Argentina had lost the islands.
Why would the the UK have to make any claim they enjoy possession. I ts whining, wanting Argentina that is the claimant. The burden was on Argentina to have instigated litigation. But opportunity is now lost to her through her own negligence. What are you talking about the dispute continued etc. Argentina after 1850 made no official claims until 1941, with possibly some muttering in 1884.
In his Message at the opening of the Argentine Congress on 1 May 1865, President Bartolomé Mitre said that Argentina had scrupulously fulfilled undertakings with Britain and France, so “there was nothing to prevent the consolidation of friendly relations between this country and those Governments.”6 If there had been a dispute between Britain and Argentina over the Falklands, there would have been something to prevent that consolidation.

In 1882 the Foreign Ministry of Argentina, and not of some other country, produced a map called the Latzina Map. It clearly shows the Falkland Islands as non-Argentine land by the fact that it was coloured without shaded relief of any features just as Chile was.

120,000 copies of this map were produced and some are still in existence now. They were distributed to Argentinean embassies around the world as part of the drive for immigrants.

Why is this map important? It was used by Chile at the ICJ to prove its claim to 3 Beagle Channel islands. The judges ruled in 1977 that one of the reasons they believed Chile was because of this map produced by the Argentinean government.

Please now try to unprove history. Your own government in 1882 clearly did not believe the Falklands were Argentine.

This isn't 1833, this is 1882. Almost 50 years after Argentina's garrison was booted out.

Please try to explain away the inconvenience of your own government in 1882….. I dare you!

Where are the resolutions specifically applying the right to self determination to the other overseas territories?
I have looked on the UN website and I can't find any.
What I can see is the Falkland Islands listed as one of the 16 territories yet to gain independence. It doesn't say anything about Argentina.

What has the 'secret proposal' got to do with anything? That was 40 years ago, and it didn't have anything to do with Islanders' wishes. The days when the UK could even think about signing away the rights of Islanders without asking them are long gone.

You need to get this clear in your mind; there will never be a time when it is in our interest to live under the Argentine flag or to speak Spanish, and there is no way, practically, that you can make us do it.

Secret proposal. No such thing. Ministers and civil servants tasked to deal with such matters, followed several approaches and did not sit at desks twiddling their thumbs. The brits followed UN resolution 2065 which set down the reasoning for the negotiation. The proposal included the term “interests of the population of the Falkland Islands” and any outcome would require their agreement as it is quite obviousily a case of self determination, as in the UN charter. Britain negotiated, the falklanders considered and rejected the suggestion, as is their right. Do you think Argentina would be a good bet for the islanders? Certainly not then, certainly not now.

@263 My usual brainwash please, old chap.

Interesting map that set me thinking. In 1882 those uncultivated lands (Patagonia, Tierra Del Fuego, Islas Malvinas) were collective possessions of the Provinces that made up the State of Argentina, is that not right? Sort of Argentinian Continental and Maritime Territories. Colonies if you will, which were decolonised by their incorporation into the Argentinian State. This was done through the creation of more Provinces spasmodically until completed in 1990 with the inclusion of TdF, the South Atlantic Islands and Antarctica in the Provincial fold. Until 1990 the Falkland Islands were a twice dispossessed colony of Argentina, I suppose. So Argentinian territorial integrity has been compromised since 1990. Prior to that it was an argument over the right to colonise a possession in the southern hemisphere between a southern hemisphere State and a northern hemisphere State. Pretty clear that being in the same hemisphere is the clinching argument for Argentina.

10 weeks of murders and rapes (currently being called the indigenous population by the Argie vice president), versus 180 years of peaceful civilisation of the current population.'s a toughie!!

“A pity for him that what he found is just a fake....”

So a fake?

Did Francisco Latzina exist? Yes!
In charge of the National Bureau of Statistics? Yes from 1880 to 1916.
Know a lot about Argentine geography? Yes, he published:
Géographie de la Repúblique Argentine in 1890
L'agriculture et l'élevage dans la République Argentine also in 1889
Diccionario geográfico argentino in 1899
Suplemento al Diccionario geográfico argentino in 1908.

Does the map exist? Yes. Recognised by the UN actually.
Carefully read paragraphs 126-128.

Bernardo de Irigoyen, the Argentine Interior Minister ordered it drawn up. Latzina produced it and the Argentine government published it in 1833 as a pamphlet “The Argentine Republic as a field for European Immigration”.

It's inconvenience is now trying to be downplayed.

As the maps you linked showed:
1/ there are no terrain markings or features in the islands or Chile as opposed to Argentina
2/ the islands are not in the bottom left hand box entitled “Situacion de la República Argentina en la América del Sud”
3/ The islands themselves are called “Falkland Oriental” and “Falkland Occidental” and not “Isla Soledad” and “Isla Gran Malvina”

“Please note that them Islands are called “Islas Malvinas””
Common occurrence on maps to name any features in the language the map is produced in. The name “Océano Atlántico Austral” doesn't mean it is owned by Argentina. Calling Deutschland Germany on English maps does not denote territorial ownership. Weak!

“Please note that them Islands Malvinas are the same color as the rest of Patagonia”
Aah not. Get someone younger who doesn't need glasses to have a look at them again mate. Either way the original copies and not Internet copies are the clincher-I hear the colour in real life 'pops'. Weak!

A poor attempt to blur your turnipidity…
You found a copy of an existent map on Internet, evidently forged by a Brutish Turnip with a felt pen in his hand….
You were so naïve that you even copied the counterfeiter text on his crude falsification…

Fakers text:
“Published in 120,000 copies, distributed to Argentine consulates all over the world to attract immigrants to Argentina.”
What is so important about this map, is that this is the very map that played a significant role in the territorial dispute over the Beagle Channel Islands between Argentina and Chile.
In 1977 a court of arbitration consisting of judges from The International Court of Justice ruled that they belonged to Chile, pointing out that they are marked on the 1882 Latzina map as if they were outside Argentina.”

Anglotino's text:
“120,000 copies of this map were produced and some are still in existence now. They were distributed to Argentinean embassies around the world as part of the drive for immigrants.
Why is this map important? It was used by Chile at the ICJ to prove its claim to 3 Beagle Channel islands. The judges ruled in 1977 that one of the reasons they believed Chile was because of this map produced by the Argentinean government.”

Anyhow…. The non-tampered map, I linked from Wikipedia, shows:

1) There are neither terrain markings or features at the north or south of the rio Chubut, where most of my Au placers are situated ;-)

2) Them Islands are not in the bottom left hand box entitled “Situacion de la República Argentina en la América del Sud”……... because they are covered by the above mentioned text-box.

3) The color of Patagonia and them Islands IS the same.

Malvi, what your guy has actually done is to confirm the Pepper and Pascoe version of the map story, not contradict it.

In 1884, the Argentine Geographic Institute produced a NEW map as part of the claim to the Falklands it intended to 'revive'. The Latzina map cited by Anglotino dates from two years BEFORE that.

Your guy just attempts to skirt round the absence of the Falklands on the Latzina map by claiming that the the Latzina maps was not official, but does not deny the content or existence of the map. He even credits Latzina as being a member of the Argentine Geographical Institute, which is the official source of maps.

“Respecto al Sr. Ricardo Latzina, miembro del Instituto Geográfico Argentino al igual que miembro honorario de la “Royal Statistical Society” de Londres, realizó diversas publicaciones particulares
con resultados cartográficos “ambiguos” ”

Which is more or less exactly what P&P said.

Not that any of this matters much in 2013, but I do enjoy how you systematically post Argentine documents that undermine the Argentine case. Thus we have been able to confirm recently, and purely from Argentine sources, that :
- there was no claim to the Falklands before August 1829
- only the garrison was expelled in 1833
- Argentine maps did not include the Falklands until 1888.

Nice try at an arrogance. First you can't argue and secondly you aren't eloquent enough to beat me for arrogance so its fruitless to even try.


We agree the map exists. There are plenty of the 9 page booklets with the 89x58cms map in existence. So let's concentrate on the “non-tampered map, [you] linked from Wikipedia”.

Your whole argument hinges on the colouring. So let's leave this aside, for as you argued, this can be altered and faked. I will accept this as a possibility.

Let's concentrate on the other features. The ones that can't be altered. The points you ignored.

Terrain Markings or Hachures:
Clearly limited to Argentina. You may concentrate on the paucity around the Rio Chubut but I am looking at the whole map. Chile has no hachures and neither do the Islands. By their very definition they are not accurate but they still clearly outline the ENTIRE Argentine coast including Isla de los Estados (at 534 km2 - 13% the size of East Falkland). No hills or coast outlined on the Falklands.

Naming or Exonyms and Endonym:
The islands are entitled Islas Malvinas, a case of an exonym. However the individual islands are entitled using Falkland, a case of an endonym and recognition that the islands were named by the British.

Marginalia and Insets:
You agree with me that the Islands are covered by the title in the inset. Interesting because it was possible to place this title in a manner so the Islands weren't covered. Along the top, to the left in the Pacific or even further to the right with an expansion of the entire inset to cover more of Chile. Countries don't delete parts of their territory in this manner.

Ignoring colour I could still easily make my point.

These are not the mistakes a country advertising itself around the world and trying to reclaim land lost 50 years earlier would make.

Thanks for your help. You are what is commonly called a “prop”, you just proved MY point.

Accept it or not, the invasion of 1982 doesen't represent any end for this dispute, due to despite that war, the u. n has always continued calling arg. and the u. k. to resume the negotiations and find a solution.
Respecting the wishes of the islanders, the solution for this dispute can't depend mostly on their will, specially if the u. n has never included them as a third part of the conflict, if you don't believe what i say, just get into the website of the u. n. and you'll see that there is not any resolution which says, applicaton of the right to self determination for the population form the islands, while it is true that the islands are considered like a non-self governing territory, it is also true that this cause has always been considered like a special colonial situation, beside, the u. n has never invoked that right for this cause, like it did for others colonial situations. In fact, i recommend you to search in the news archive of this website, what the president from the decolonization committe said about that so called referendum, self determination etc, it's very interesting, the date s june 15th or 16th, 2012. If you don't agree with his analysis, sorry.
In the same way that i have always criticised the fact that our govt. doesn't include the govt. from the islands in the proposal of dialogue that it asks the u. k., the govt. from the islands is not acting correcty either, because it has never accepted to discuss about the sovereignty which is the main rpoblem. The secret proposal of 1974 was based basicly on a shared sovereignty, c. f. k. read them before the u. n. in june 14th 2012.

@ Sir Hans and Anglotino:
The lighter color for the Falkland Islands may mean missing data or that Argentina is not in actual possession.
Anyway the map is not official.
At the time of an official map including islands, London protested:
Ortiz Response to Monson: “The Government of His Britannic Majesty should not find probable motive in this protest, since such inclusion does not alter the state have always been considered the Falklands, whose issue, as Your Excellency has had manifestármelo's deference, is pending and subject to the resolution of the governments.
Respuesta de Ortiz a Monson: ”El Gobierno de su Majestad Británica no debería hallar en esto motivo fundado de protesta, desde que esa inclusión no modifica en nada el estado en que siempre se han considerado las Malvinas, cuya cuestión, como Vuestra Excelencia ha tenido la deferencia de manifestármelo, se halla pendiente y sujeta a la solución de los Gobiernos.”
It seems strange that P & P shows a map and conceal the existence of the other map?

I see. So :

- maps produced by the Argentine Geographic Institute in 1884 are 'official'
- maps produced by the Argentine Geographic Institute before 1884 are not 'official'
- but Think's map produced by one Curt Stiller in 1883 is 'official'

Is that it?

Alternatively, maybe your guy is dead right when he talks about 'cartográficos “ambiguos”' prior to 1884. (nice euphemism there)

But that would make P&P right too. Which brings us right back to the start again, as usual.

@289 Malvinense 1833

Mate you are so far behind everyone else that you actually think you are the one in front.

So short version:

The map was produced by the Argentine government, is official and copies still exist.

So so hard to argue with physical evidence.

The Letzina map was correct enough for the ICJ to arbitrate in favour of Chile over Islas PNL!!!!!!!

United Kingdom history, Argentine style:

The United Kingdom has been united under Union Jack for thousands of years.

The Romans never invaded, they came to stay in the south as tourists.
The Anglo-Saxons never invaded, they werer also tourists.
East Anglia, Essex, Kent, Mercia, Northumbria, Sussex and Wessex were not separate states, but provinces in the United Kingdom.
Danelagen (the Danelaw) was a tourist resort.
The vikings never invaded, they came as tourists and Knud (Cnut) was kind of UK citizen even before he arrived.
The Norman conquest never happened, the Normans they came as tourists and William was also a kind of UK citizen even before he arrived.

Sir Hans and Anglotino:
In short........................:


An Argentinean map of 1875 calling the Islas Malvinas...

Two maps ambiguous Latzina makes you think to P & P Argentina renunciation of sovereignty.

definition ambiguous:

Cleverly hide the map in which the islands have the same color as the rest of Argentina.
An Argentinean map of 1882 calling the Islas Malvinas...
These maps are particular publications, unofficial.

An Argentinean map of 1885 calling the Islas Malvinas...
Before and after Laztina maps, exist Argentine maps including islands as Argentine.
Where is the resignation?
Again P & P are unmasked.
And the island people know the truth.
I hope to discuss these issues sometime, sharing a meal :-))

Who cares what some mouldy old maps say?
This has always been our land & it is now.
l have listened to your feeble evidence, malvinistas, & its mostly irrelevant.
You have no case & you know it.
Go & claim someone elses land if you want an empire.
There is nothing here for you.

Dear Isolde:
“Who cares what some mouldy old maps say?”
Maybe Pascoe and Pepper, who present false evidence.
“This has always been our land & it is now.”
I agree.
“There is nothing here for you.”
His words left me sad.
However, I have something for you:
Kisses, Isolde.

You have given yourself away Think, you stalker.

@297 Malvinense1833,
Thank you Malvi, but l am happily married.
@298 Troy Tempest,
Malvinense has been on here before, l could be wrong but l don't think that it's our Chubut Squatter, Think.
However l have noticed that Malvinense's English has vastly improved.
Maybe someone else is writing for him/her.

@299 Isolde

Ahhh, thx Isolde.

Monty69 had been telling Think off for making slimy advances - looked like a characteristic of his.
Now, the newly-eloquent Malvinese is doing the same thing.

I expect that these socially maladjusted trolls don't meet women often.
