Argentine province Tierra del Fuego announced its rejection to the government's decision to make national holiday Malvinas Veterans Day, 2 April, a floating holiday anticipating it will bring up the issue in Congress.
Tierra del Fuego provincial government cabinet chief Leonardo Gorbacz made the announcement arguing that April 2 must not be a floating holiday. We will be taking this position to the congressional two Houses committee.
He added that Malvinas Veterans and Fallen in combat Day is a very deep poignant feeling for the people of Tierra del Fuego, and anticipated the provincial government will be working in all fields, at the right institutional levels, as it did when Buenos Aires tried to cut the refunding for operations from Patagonia ports.
Nevertheless chief cabinet Gorbacz recalled that at provincial level rules Law 362 which establishes that April 2 is a provincial holiday which guarantees it is unmovable, but we want it to be this way for the whole of Argentina given the relevance it represents for the people of Tierra del Fuego.
April 2, is when the Argentine military invaded and occupied for several weeks the Falkland Islands back in 1982.
