Imbibed with the 40th anniversary of the Falklands conflict spirit, the city of Ushuaia decided to elevate the department which dealt with Malvinas Islands issues, to the rank of Secretariat, thus “reaffirming the will of Ushuaia residents as the capital of Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and South Atlantic Islands”.

The city's cabinet chief Omar Becerra added that the mayor of Ushuaia Walter Vuoto had sent the bill to the Legislative Council, which approved it unanimously.

Becerra mentioned that mayor Vuoto in the framework of the 40tth anniversary of the Malvinas memorable events said, the Secretariat “is a continuous policy of the city and the province to honor, respect and enhance the memory of those Malvinas events, veterans and former combatants, plus sustaining the unrenounceable sovereignty rights over our Islands”

The Secretariat will specifically coordinate all actions from Town Hall referred to Malvinas, and all those others involving international relations and sovereignty.

Finally, “Malvinas unites us and how president Fernandez said 'lest nobody take from us the love for Malvinas, lest nobody take from us the right we have over those islands, and from our Capital City we will continue to work so that the Malvinas flame remains alight”

    Yet another useless “secretariat” has been created. Could anyone estimate how many such institutions there are on national, regional and local levels in Argentina? I assume the people “working” with this are well paid. Argentina's economy is not the best, but for such things there is always money. They will of course achieve nothing. Just making the people on the Islands even more (if possible) anti-Argentine.

    What would Simon Bolivar say?
    It is simple: 'No way, Jose.'

    Malvinism is gradually becoming a “state religion” in Argentina. It is already in their constitution. Logos with the islands must appear on school uniforms etc.There are “Malvinas son Argentinas” on public transport vehicles and stations and airports. Sooner or later it will be mandatory to have a “malvinas sign” in every class room, like the Stars and stripes in the U.S.A. or a crucifix like in Italy. Their obsession with those islands is becoming more and more absurd. With 40 years of the invasion coming up it would be very interesting to see what more stupidities they can find out. But the result is of course zero. Just waist of money.
