JUNE 10TH. Day of Affirmation of Argentine Rights over the Malvinas, Islands and Antarctic Sector

Law 20,561, which establishes the homeland date, was born as an initiative of the National Deputy for the Land of Fire, Esther Fadul; one of the great advocates of the sovereign rights of the islands usurped by Britain.

On June 10, 1829, the Political and Military Command of the Malvinas Islands and adjacent to Cape Horn was created.

Today, the 195th anniversary of the creation of the Political and Military Command of the Malvinas Islands and adjacent to Cape Horn , when Luis Vernet was appointed as first governor, in 1829, is celebrated throughout the country.

Which means that, as of that date; There was an effective Argentine in the Malvinas Islands and different acts of sovereignty were exercised in the archipelago, until January 3, 1833; day when the United Kingdom invaded the islands and expelled the Argentine population and authorities, who were replaced by British officials.

Since that moment there has been a sovereignty dispute between Argentina and Great Britain, as recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in Resolution 2065 of 1965.

In compliance with that Resolution, since 1966 and for 16 years - until February 1982 - both countries carried out negotiations to reach a solution to the sovereignty dispute.

However, on April 2, 1982, the Argentine dictatorship broke the important diplomatic dialogue obtained in the United Nations, and by force of arms recovered them for a period of 74 days; until the United Kingdom invaded them again militarily, until the Argentine troops surrendered on June 14 of that year.

The ill-advised decision of the military leadership that de facto governed the country gave sufficient arguments to Great Britain to refuse from now on and for these subsequent 42 years, to resume the bilateral dialogue achieved within the UN, and even worse, to use the military defeat as an argument to expand its colonial position and with it, the plundering of Argentine wealth and natural resources in the South Atlantic.
