On January 3rd, it is the 190th anniversary of the day in which the British military forces illegally occupied the Malvinas Islands. The CTA-T (Argentine Workers’ Central Union) commemorates this date and supports the Argentine Government’s claim of sovereignty, as a legitimate and indefeasible right over our territories.

Thus, the CTA-T calls for the end of British colonialism, like the international community did on reiterated opportunities, and we call upon the continuation of bilateral negotiations. Ten resolutions of the General Assembly of the United Nations, thirty-nine resolutions of the UN Special Committee on Decolonization, several declarations from regional and multilateral forums such as the Organization of American States, G77 plus China, MERCOSUR, the Ibero-American Summit, CELAC and PARLASUR, and others; all of them advocate for the same claim of our country.

Adding to the negative response from Britain to solve the dispute through dialogue, there is also the disproportionate military presence of the United Kingdom on the archipelago, taking into account that our country does not represent any kind of threat to their country. In the year of the 40th anniversary of the restoration of democracy in Argentina, this Central Union advocates for the pursuit of a pacific resolution to this conflict.
