Argentinian community celebrates Independence Day in Madrid



More than five hundred Argentines and friends of Argentine celebrated, on Monday, at the College Nuestra Señora de Luján, the festivity of July 9, which commemorates the signing of the Declaration of the Argentine Independence, in 1816.


Argentine’s Ambassador to Spain, Ramón Puerta, expressed his satisfaction with the celebration of the festivity “with all of you and in its whole dimension that unites us with our Motherland”. Puerta emphasized that “there is still much left to be done” and pointed out that the challenge is “to continue to stand out as Argentines and to work as a system”, in a commitment that “is not only the economy, but also the art and the culture”.


During the event, those present paid an emotional tribute to the singer and composer Alberto Cortez, of whom the ambassador said that “he is a great Argentine and a great Latin American that has projected us to the world”.


The director of the College, Karina Conde, remembered the special meaning that the celebration of July 9 has for those who “are outside our motherland” and proposed those present “to celebrate what we are from our deepest identity”.
