Argentina: Malvinas Monument to be Inaugurated

Two groups of family members will travel to the Falklands/Malvinas Islands next month to inaugurate a memorial in the Darwin cemetery. The Argentine cenotaph has been ready since April 2004 but has not been officially inaugurated. The Argentines originally wanted to travel in one group, but this proved logistically difficult so now the ceremonies will take place on two consecutive Saturdays.

This is a story which is genuinely relevant to this blog, but childishly, my favourite thing about it is the name of the Argentine official responsible for the organisation: Gabriel Fucks. Really.
