“Self-determination and self-sufficiency” is the Falkland Islands message to the world on the day the Islands commemorate the 29th anniversary of its liberation, said the Falklands’ government representative in London Sukey Cameron, who added Argentina continues with its campaign to claim sovereignty and disrupt the Falklands economy.

    ““Self determination and self sufficiency”, Falklands message to the world on Liberation Day” It seems that the world is blind and deaf because nobody cares about the self determination and self sufficiency. Because it's amusing that those politicians talk about liberation when the islanders live under the threat of the english government in london, you still need to go the London to be heard, like nobody listens to the islanders, only those lords in England who smile :) and people over there don't even know where the islands are. It's sad to see that Ms Sukey Cameron is playing the game of those avaricious men in London and has decided to sell herself to them.

    @2 “Hurrah ... don't you just love it when a plan comes together!” oh man your mental health is in trouble, you should take a double dose of your pills, seriously.

    Mercopress, your cowardice is reaching the levels of bestiality. Why do you delete comments like that of Think #1? You should repost the comment. If you like to hide things from your readers that means that something is really wrong with you, and that you are worried. In Argentina we talk about everything, good and bad things, just to get rid of garbage, you can't hide it underneath the carpet.

    Not too much of a liberation if you act like this Mercopress, it sounds more like hostility and mediocrity towards the islanders not us. Lies won't live forever Mercopress, if you lie one day you'll have to face the truth, it always happens like that.

    @ 3 what victory are you talking about? the victory of deleting comments? what happened in 1982? Seriously, that doesn't even count, I wasn't even born in those days. What counts is what the government of Cristina Fernández is doing, nothing more than that. Everything else, is bound to change, and so it will be at the appropriate time and that includes the possession of the islands. This is a democratic government, and what happened in 1982 under the dictatorship, has zero importance.

    In fact, I was living in Argentina in April 1982 and I clearly remember people driving around Rio Gallegos hooting their cars ecstatic with joy about the invasion and “la recuperacion de nuestras malvinas”. Like hell! Pan y circo, that's all you Argies understand...

    “Our investment in education continues to bear fruit; a number of our graduates hold influential positions in both the public and private sectors”

    Well by judging by the posts made on mercopress by Bennies I think you are not making a good job on education. Trust me.

    “Our students continue to make us proud; last year eighty one percent of year 11 students at the Falkland Islands Community School gained at least five A* to C grades – far in excess of the comparable UK figures of sixty nine point one percent.”

    Is that a joke? Comparable with UK figures and your queen is not still laughing for the joke?
    If I have 1 student and he gets a C grade can I consider my achievement as a world record?

    If you know Jaime Peck personally like I do, you would know he is a very shelfish man, he only ever looks out for himself. He would have been offered a lot to take Argentine nationality, told what to say, and he would have done it to get what he was offered. And you can have him, the man was only ever a drain on the government's resources and finances. A lazy quiter, who never really offered much. It makes me angry what he has done, but he is now Argentina's problem.

    There was no repercussion since everybody wants a stable relationship with Argentina and UK, here we used to say “we all want to sleep peacefully”. Nobody wants to take part in this conflict that only concerns Argentina and UK. That's the simple reason. Argentina and Brazil are the giants economies in South America.

    Honestly I find it weird to commemorate the end of a war but well it is your day, Peace!

    Where Gibraltar goes, there's a good chance that the Falkland Islands will eventually follow -

    “ ... ”To argue that decolonisation only occurs if it is granted by the Committee of 24 is to condemn Gibraltar never to be decolonised. There is no point asking them to do it - they never will. Our decolonisation is a factual reality (regardless of the Committee of 24's inactivity) by virtue of our powers of self Government and self legislation, our modern non-colonial and consensual Constitutional relationship with Britain (accepted by Gibraltarians in an act of self determination) and because Britain declares the relationship not to be colonial in nature. Decolonisation in the relevant sense has already occurred. The Committee of 24 cannot detract from these obvious realities. We are not 'consenting colonials' as Spain has told Mr Picardo at C24, but consenting political partners with the UK, in a modern non-colonial relationship with the UK underpinned by our chosen British Sovereignty. We will never get more than that in the Committee of 24. For the Government, Gibraltar is no longer in a colonial situation viz a viz the UK and there is therefore no need to go to C24 to ask for decolonisation... ”

    Jamie Peck! - His last act here was of a common petty criminal- he was caught redhanded at night stealing vegetables from several peoples gardens - you really want that sort of creep - no problems - he is yours! If he returns here he can still be prosecuted!
    He is of course perfectly entitled to his personal political beliefs and logically if you decide a country is going to be your home then you in time obtain the right to live there as a citizen - the farce of birth certificates is a political stunt for no doubt he is being very well paid with money from Argentine taxpayers! No doubt he will be paid some more next year to go to the UN C24 and spout out the Arg speil.
    On a family level- and I think family respect is an important thing in Argentina? - there could be no greater personal insult from a son to his deceased father - and to his mother, brother and sisters - to do what he has done on Liberation Day - Terry Peck rest in peace - you were 5000 times the man your son Jamie ever will be.Personal choice is everybodys right in a democracy - but not that specific way.
    Dont forget fanatical Argentines on here - there are several with Arg birth certificates and nationality who live and work here who now also hold Fialkands citizenship rights - we dont bribe them to get a false birth certificate though- they keep the one they have - same as somebody from any other part of the world!

    maybe islanders are trying to conceal THE REAL STORY about James Peck:

    “Forbidden love in a cold climate - Anthony Browne - Observer
    Sunday May 12, 2002

    It is a modern day version of Romeo and Juliet set not in fair Verona, but the chilly south Atlantic. A pair of star-crossed lovers have been forced into exile from the Falkland Islands for the ultimate sin: falling in love with the enemy.
    Now the story looks set to become the closely-knit island's first human rights case.
    The cast includes James Peck, a sixth-generation Falkland Islander, and the only professional artist in the British territory; his father Terry Peck MBE, a decorated war hero who was the only islander to take up arms against the Argentine army; James's best friend Michael, an Argentine conscript who fought Terry in battle; and James's pregnant girlfriend María, who happens to be Argentine.
    María moved in to James's home in the former battleground of Goose Green, and kept a low profile. But the relationship between the son of the island's only war hero and the Argentine woman has caused such controversy that the island's hospital has refused to give treatment to María during the birth, and the church has refused to let them marry.
    With claims of official cold-shouldering, James and María have been forced to leave and stay in a borrowed apartment in Buenos Aires, the enemy capital, to await the birth of their baby. 'We had to leave and that was it,' said James from his Argentine hideaway. 'Most of my friends can't believe this awful treatment.'
    The episode is particularly embarrassing for the Falkland Islanders, who are currently celebrating their liberation from Argentine dictatorship 20 years ago.
    Now human rights monitors working for the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office have intervened in the case, and James has instructed a solicitor in the Falklands to take legal action against the island government.”

    And perhaps you might want to let us know the results of the 'legal action'? No, thought not.
    The problem wasn't that Jamie's girlfriend was Argentine; there are plenty of people with Argentine partners here. The problem was that she didn't have Falkland Island Status, or a Permanent Residence permit, or a work permit. Unfortunately, sleeping with a Falkland Islander doesn't give anyone a right to benefits here.
    As for the church, I understand that he wanted a church blessing from the Catholic church when he was still married to someone else. Why don't you try asking for that and see how far you get?

    Anyway, the man's an arse, and you're welcome to him. Like Mike Bingham, he is just too amazingly talented and charismatic for a place as small as this and has decided to take himself off to a place where his unique talents are more appreciated. Just make sure you put a padlock on your vegetable gardens.

    @22 “A lazy quiter, who never really offered much”

    James looks like a real artist to me:
    I recommend the reading of the article “Ideas of Freedom” on his webpage.

    This discussion is interesting to think about how the islanders see themselves, suffice it to say this is no archipelago of innocent lambs:

    Lewis Clifton, he likes argentina! He's been here several times. Actually he visited Buenos Aires for the first time for a sailing race when he was a kid. It was the first time in his life he'd seen a subway, and when the train came he jumped back scared of the noise.

    If only islanders were willing to open their minds a little more, no wonder why James -an artist- is now argentine. What has a free thinker, creative mind to do in a land of backwards thinking conservative people who are being used by britain to exercise colonialism in the 21st century?

    From (#18)'s link

    “Mr Peck's father fought in the war on the British side, but he thinks the islands, called the Malvinas in Spanish, should be ruled by the South American country.

    Reiterating Argentina's sovereignty claim, Mrs Fernandez urged Britain to hold talks over the islands' future.”

    Now correct me if i am wrong, Did Mr Peck not run for Election in 2007, here is parts of the ELECTION MANIFESTO OF JAMES PECK.

    “It’s understandable that I concentrate for more than a moment on Argentina. It’s actually not that difficult to keep a family relationship separate from the duties of representing one’s people. As far as I am concerned the Argentine Flag will never fly here whilst I live here, regardless of whether I am elected or not. I owe this to my father and to the security and opportunities available here to my children and to those who made the sacrifice for us. It is a simple black and white situation and I will not be bullied into any other position here or anywhere else.”

    Funny how things changed due to the power hungry not getting his fill, then again, it is far more easier to play the Argentinean card, and live easy, than to actually work.

    I am intrigued by the fact that you can't grasp the paradox; to you, everyone who doesn't think the way you do has a 'closed mind'.
    I could, equally, urge you to look past your limited education and government propaganda and open your minds to our point of view. Which is formed from personal experience and not by reading 'The Sun'.
    Everybody has the right to choose their future as individuals, and if that choice takes them to Argentina, then so be it.It's your government's claim to our country that is the problem, not Argentines themselves, and if you can't see that then you should 'open your minds' and try harder.

    self determination over a territory is just to native people, since uk invade in 1833 replacing our governor and our people from there its turn into an invasion, took a a book where you can find the meaning of different words i recomend you to read it.maybe that way you'll know what invasion means. Since that and the UN recognition of that invasion, only applies the principle of territorial integrity. keep repeating as a parrot “self determination” but i said it before, no country has said no to negotiations on the sovereignty of the islands in public, except the United Kingdom of course.
    but many organisms support the negotiations and the argentinian claim. and not only from south america, so explain me how can you believe that too many countries are wrong and you are right? maybe its because you know you'll lose it. and the world sees over and over how argentina claims in peace and uk refuse to do what the UN told them to do.maybe its your stupid proud that dont let you see, that nobody support you at least in public, and we are support by a lot of countries, and anothers who are in favor to negociate (neutral). then more than a half of the world are wrong and you are right? can you believe such a foolishness? oh yeah, its seems you can...

    44 no country can be created into another country who was independent before.
    its a UN principle.
    thats why i said it before: if uk would took the islands Since before argentina was free, then you could say self determination. but the UK took the islands when argentina was already free and when argentina had in the islands a government and people.
    A colony its an entity who depends or its under a potence control. but when uk took it argentina already had it with their own government and own people. wich means that the uk install their own government and their own people inside argentina jurisdiction because argentina was independent since 1816 and argentina took the islands in 1820, uk invade it in 1833 which is invasion.
    and what i said about native people and self determination is not a lie. that principle was the one of the first ones that the UN made to create an peacefully organism who respect others territories. why do you think the UN classified the dispute as a different case of colonialism? because there is people who depends from uk, as a colony, but they were put in there by the uk, that means they are not colony. thats why this turn into a bilateral dispute, in a normal colony there is no bilaterlality, but the UN said this case was different and its a bilateral dispute between UK and argentina. with 94 votes in favor, 14 abstentions, none against. (UN Resoltion 2065 (xx) ).

    “if uk would took the islands Since before argentina was free, then you could say self determination. but the UK took the islands when argentina was already free and when argentina had in the islands a government and people.”

    The natives of the area you now call Argentina were free before your ancestors colonised the place and yet you have the right to self determination, sure you stabbed the Spanish in the back which somehow wipes the slate clean for you ex-colonial hypocrites but that doesn't we have to do the same. It's our choice about what our allegiences are just as it was your choice when you became you can mind your own bloody business.

    you are persecuted by us? we dont have any problem to the islanders, our problem its just with UN. Our government didnt recognize your right well then why the UN didnt do it neither? or now you'll say because we are using “jedi tricks” LOL
    The UN want negotiations, not just us. ask yourself why is that before asking if we recognize you or not...
    45 freedom of choice? did you read the kelpers that come to argentina what happend to them when they tried to go back to visit malvinas what happend?
    Yolanda bertrand had been prohibited to enter to the islands once she went to argentina, martyn clarke went to argentina and because he appear in tv kelpers broke the windows from his house in malvinas, thats the freedom of choice you mean?

    I wonder if you have told all those countries who support 'negotiations' that your constitution itself says that the return of the islands to Argentina is the only acceptable outcome?
    Isn't that what you mean by 'negotiations'?

    And how do you see those negotions working out? It doesn't seem as though you've left yourselves much to talk about. I actually think it wouldn't hurt at all to set up a meeting. It would be very short, but at least we could all say we'd done it:
    Argentina; 'Give us the Islands'
    Britain; 'Hold on, we'll just ask the Islanders what they think'
    Falkland Islanders; 'No'

I was around in 1982 but i think you will be hard pressed to find anyone around in 1883, correct me if i am wrong. If neither of these events have any relevance then what only matters is 2011 and therefore as a democracy you have to accept the islanders rights to determine their own future.

    That is the only conclusion based upon your theoretical proposition!

    Please tell me what CFK is actually doing as it appears to be having no effect on sovereignty or on the economic development, including oil exploration in the Islands?

    Sounds like she is a resounding failure on that issue then. She has also by default cut you out of any future deal on oil production that looks likely to occur in the Falkland Islands.

    Serinox - But the UK does have the islands. I don't see any evidence to the contrary. So in what way does the UK not have the islands? Please educate me on this as it is a black and white matter.

    The islanders don't “ask” for a right, they have it and they have self-determination. Argentina is trying to take that away but for some reason always appears reluctant to take its supposed claim for legal scrutiny? Is it because it knows it would lose or is it scared to take a risk?

    No-one supports our position. So why are the Islands part of the Lisbon Treaty? Does the EU not exist? What about Brazil, it appears happy for Falklands sea food to be landed on its territory?

    Regarding CFK, how would you feel about a noisy aggressive neighbour shouting at you all the time when all you want is peaceful partnership. However all you posturing is getting you no where otherwise something would have happened by now.

    The UN doesn't tell us to do anything. It's “asks” both sides and if one side wishes not to then that it has no ability to make that side change it's mind. Anyway, the UN also say that the best interests of the Islanders are paramount and in the adult and rational free world the individual has the right to decide what is in their best interests.

Were you born in Malvinas? If you were born in Malvinas, that makes you an Argentine, it doesn't matter what the English crown says. If you were not born in Malvinas, then you are an immigrant in Malvinas. Seriously, what people like Frank (where is he anyway?) says, doesn't matter. This woman Sukey Cameron is also an Argentine. Isolde you are an Argentine too, sister, if you were born in Malvinas Argentinas like Sukey Cameron and James Peck. If you were not born in Malvinas, then you are an illegal immigrant.

    @ Searinox
    You are incredible fool. I have looked back over your comments and it is difficult to see how you manage to to maintain such stupidity. Except, of course, for the fact that you are an Argentine brainwashed in the Argentine education system.

    Here's some FACTS. Britain was in the Falklands in 1690. Total Argentine occupation of the Islands since 1765 amounts to less than 3 years. Whilst British occupation is more than 148 years. And don't try to get smart over the word “occupation”. All it means is that British people have been there around 74 times as long as you Argies.

    While we're at it, why shouldn't Britain ignore UN resolution 2065? It's a General Assembly resolution. And GA resolutions are non-binding. Have you heard of UN Security Council resolutions? They ARE binding. But you Argies ignored two of them. 502 and 505. You also regularly breach the UN Charter as well as the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

    Regular little criminals, you are. As a nation.

    You might think that Cristina's Botox-fuelled words are important. We don't. Just a little yapping bitch.

    But I have come up with a method of resolving the whole problem to nearly everyone's satisfaction. We have four nuclear-powered submarines each one with 16 nuclear ballistic missiles. each missile can carry up to 8 nuclear warheads. I make that 512 warheads. Each warhead can vary between 100 kilotons and 475 kilotons. So I make it that we can drop 243,200 kilotons on any troublemaker. I think Cristina and Argentina are troublemakers.

    It would not be a fair fight with the Argies. They cannot even maintain their own airforce or have access to amphibious landing craft.

    We wouldn't need to use trident. In 1982 the Argie high command scared the crap out of their own forces by telling their own men that the Gurkhas prefered decapitating their enemy rather than shooting them. At the first sight of a Gurkha those Argies ran faster the Usain Bolt and the Gurkhas felt cheated out of a fight.

    Searinox you dont half love fantasies! - but then you are Argentine I guess? Most of the nations you claim suport Argentina - only support(including here USA) - Argentina in that the sides should enter into newgotiations to resolve the dispute. And for most of them THERE their support ends.
    Most of them are unaware that legally according to your Constitution and repeated verbally frequently by your Govt Ministers - these talks can only have one swift outcome - full Argentine Sovereignty over the Islands and people regardless of what the people may wish.
    That is simply why no normal sane Country like UK will even sit down and negotiate - negotiations are open ended discussions at the start you prick! Hopefully at the end of them you then come to a mutually acceptable compromise solution! Since Arg has made it clear that can never ever happen - there never ever will be such negotiations- get it?
    No list me please the Nations that have agreed with Argentina as follows:

    The population of the Islands have no rights to any say in their political future and have to hand over their homeland to Argentina regardless.

    That as you know is the only outcome that Arg will accept.

    Come on - list me the Countries that have publicly backed this?

    Asa have said before on here - we trade with several of your neighbours - all their official communications to the Islands are addressed to either:

    The Government of the Falkland Islands

    The most amazing thing about 95% of the Argentine contributers here is that they have not taken the time to read the Falklands timeline. Britain's claim to the Falklands dates back hundreds of years before the existance of the Argentine Republic, before even the Republic of Buenos Aires.

    The continuous British / Falkland settlement of the Falkland Islands has existed for almost 180 years. The Argentine settlement of the Falkland Islands lasted a few months! What does that suggest? That Argentina has a valid claim to these islands?

    The case is hilarious, to most people outside of Argentina! How brainwashed and poorly educated you all are. Your President need only wave a flag in your faces and you will march (or more likely cheer the marchers) to the sound of jackboots! No wonder you have had successive military and neo-fascist dictatorships! No wonder Argentina has been a proxy state of America for so long!

    All the people of Argentina care about are soccer and the Falkland Islands!

    You lost in 1982, you are going to continue to loose, until your foreign policy adapts to the real world, rather than a map of the world that never existed, other than in some childish imagination of the uber nationalists!

    You can not force your way into other territories at the end of a gun, ethnically cleanse the people - as most of you want to - and get away with it. The UN and the international community will not allow it. That's why Argentina's stance on the Falkland Islands is the worst possible stance Argentina could take.

    Time for you all to part-take in your daily dose of Los Malvina psychosis! Keep taking those tables, tune into your tv's, salute the flag and don't question reality! It's like INSOC 1984 Argentine style!

    “Imagine, imagine you lived on the Falklands, your ancestry is British, your language is English, your entire cultural identity is British and your biggest fear is a neighbor thousands of times bigger taking over everything. That, my friend, would be your biggest nightmare”

    Now imagine that neighbor is corrupt, that they wont listen to reason, think themselves above international law, are thieves of property, have invaded you once and would not hesitate to do so again, they are out of money with inflation in runaway mode, with poverty running riot.

    Scepticism surrounds Argentina poverty.

    Inflating poverty in Argentina.

    Hungry in Argentina .

    Middle Class Revolt - Argentina.

    That is not a nightmare, that is like living next to the devil and his mates.

    “Imagine, imagine you live in Argentina your ancestors are from many parts of the world your language is Spanish, your entire culture identity is Argentinean. And your biggest fears is a little island thousand of times smaller that gives unrestricted access to a Imperialist nation like UK that bombs and kills innocent people in many countries in the world just for oil and power aspiration.”

    We wouldn't need the islands to launch an attack on Argentina. Fail argument is fail.

    FU Isolde!!! The people of the Malvinas are there illegally. The Argentine claim goes back to the Spanish claim and this was supported by Rome. England is a protestant country and in order to prevent Latin America being influenced by England Rome set down edict. Even though Britain claims Falkland Islands before Spain, their claim does not count. We landed on the island and set up a colony of 22 men, they would not leave until forced to by American ship. The population there now have been there ever since, they are like squatters and have no right to the land. That land is ours by devine right!

    “self determination over a territory is just to native people”

    Utter bollocks since several of the territories that are or were on the UN decolonisation list do not have native populations, some never had them as they were uninhabited when discovered by Europeans

    Currently on the UN decolonisation list 10 out of 16:

    Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Montserrat, Pitcairn Islands, Saint Helena (inc Tristan da Cunha), Turks and Caicos Islands, and US Virgin Islands.

    Formerly on the UN decolonisation list 13 out of 35

    Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Cabo Verde, Cocos Islands, Guadaloupe,
    Jamaica, Martinique, Mauritius, Réunion, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, and Seychelles

    1) The Falklands are not and never have been part of Argentina

    2) The UN did not exist in 1833. The UN Charter and resolutions are not retroactive to a time when the UN did not exist.

    -Bangladesh from Pakistan
    -Eritrea from Ethiopia
    -Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia Hercegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia from Yugoslavia

    @ malen (#) you are obviously a socialist and would like to call us all indigenous. Truth is most of the indigenous of Argentina were killed by our forefathers long ago. I have no wish to be called indigenous, my family is 100% Italian-Argentine.

    @ dab14763 (#) who cares about this UN? They are controlled by the same Anglo-American imperialists who are to blame for all the worlds problems!

    I was born in Córdoba 1992 and moved with my family to Montreal in 2001, then returned to Argentina in 2009. In Montreal, I learn about the British and how their colonialism has oppressed the entire world. In the center of French speaking Montreal there is the famous Trafalgar Square with Nelsons column in the center, this celebrating the defeat of the French and Spanish fleets in the heart of what is French Quebec! Above Trafalgar Square there flies the English flag with, in each quarter the symbols of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales! Regularly English Canadians come to Montreal to fight French Canadians who they hate. This is where I find out about British colonialism and this is why I wish to see all colonials removed from Malvinas!

    The Horatio Nelson statue that originally stood on top of Nelson's column in Place Jacques Cartier is now found at the Centre d'histoire de Montréal, after it was removed in 1997 to preserve it from the weather. A copy now stands atop of the column in Place Jacques Cartier

    Your credibility as aan “EXPAT” (Excellent Patriotic Argentinean Turnip) seems to be disputed by some...................... (including me)

    Well………… You say that you were born in Argentina, lived here the first nine years of your life, emigrated with your Italo-Argentinean family to Canada and returned “Home” some two years ago............

    So……….. A “Patriot” like you should, under ”normal” circumstances, have a pretty good command of the Spanish language…..........Right?

    Why not prove all those ”Mr /Mrs Know-All” Brits (and this Argentinean) wrong by translating your own words below to Spanish ???

    **** “In Montreal, I learn about the British and how their colonialism has oppressed the entire world. In the center of French speaking Montreal there is the famous Trafalgar Square with Nelsons column in the center, this celebrating the defeat of the French and Spanish fleets in the heart of what is French Quebec!” ****
