The event began at 17 on Sunday 22 December and closed with an exciting act: at 20 pm, everyone sang at the same time Charly García’s song “Unconscious collective”.

Mama freedom, you’ll always carry it inside your

heart

.

They can corrupt you

.

You can forget

but she’s always

there.

In Plaza de Mayo, the crowd gathered was lucky enough to hear the verses of the song recited by Graciela Borges. Then, many great Argentine musicians sang the song, along with the crowd gathered there, who could read the lyrics of the song on a giant screen .

today I woke up singing this song

that was written a long time ago.

It is necessary to sing again,
