 December 20, 2001 

In the history of every country there are certain dates that say everything just by naming them. In the recent history of  Argentina , one such date is  20 December 2001 . Because, when your president literally flies away from the government house, it means things aren't going well at all.

From the  Plaza de Mayo  came the cry of “Let them all go”, and  Fernando De la Rúa  did not hesitate: overtaken by the situation, he resigned from his post, got on a helicopter and left. No more. With the country on fire, the president who never had what to have hung up his gloves and let someone else take care of the situation.

December 20 will be remembered forever as the day when the hard-won democracy staggered as never before in history. The day people went out to the streets to say “enough” and some took the opportunity to destabilize, steal, assault and even kill. Therefore, it is worth remembering this date to keep in mind that  it is the head that handles the body, but it is the body that holds the head.
