 20 December 2001 

In the history of every country there are certain dates that say everything just by naming them. In  Argentina 's recent history, one such date is  20 December 2001 . Because, when your president leaves — literally — flying out of the government house, it means things are not going well at all.

From the  Plaza de Mayo  came the cry of “Let everyone go”, and  Fernando De la Rúa  did not hesitate: overtaken by the situation, he resigned his post, got on a helicopter and left. With the country on fire, the president who never had what to wear hung up his gloves and let someone else take care of the situation.

December 20 will be remembered forever as the day when the democracy we had so hard to achieve staggered as never before in history. The day when people went out to the streets to say “enough” and some took the opportunity to destabilize, steal, assault and even kill. That is why 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.
