    Good luck to this young man who obviously knows how to look after his horses.

    Let us hope nothing untoward happens to him on his journey.

    A day like today, July 9 but from 1816, the United Provinces of the South proclaimed the freedom and independence of the Kingdom of Spain and took all the territories that Spain governed and administered from Buenos Aires, including Malvinas.

    This proclamation was recognized and remembered in the past and in the present from all great states and nations that congratulate the people of Argentina in this special, important and so representative date.

    Just to look the simple logo that Google use globally today can realize the importance.

    Or even just read the message from the secretary of state of the United States (Hillary Clinton) published an official greeting to the people of Argentina in the US Departament State site.

    What Mercopress say in his policy ??

    “MercoPress is an independent news agency which focuses on delivering news related to Mercosur-member countries...”

    “..MercoPress offers an update of the main events which model the integration process, its influence on the main players of the region as well as the relations with other economic-political spaces...”

    Anyway, despite the existing policy...for MP is more important at this time (9 July) publish the history of a cowboy.

    Clap clap 100% unbiased media

    What a choice for our friendly editorial team. “Argentina takes another day off work” or “Unemployed journalist puffs his yet to be written book”. Must really have been a no news day.
