Between the Obelisk and Plaza de Mayo

In Buenos Aires when we want to protest we go to Plaza de Mayo, when we want to celebrate, the Obelisk.

As we are
Gol Messi

Each city has an emblematic place where important things happen: revolutions, political events, sports celebrations, marches, protests. That place where everything begins and everything ends, the scene of the  transcendental events of history .

In  Buenos Aires , however, our locations are segmented: when we want to protest, we go to  Plaza de Mayo ; when we want to celebrate, we go to the  Obelisk . Occasionally some claim moves to the  Plaza del Congreso , when the direct recipient is the  Legislative Branch .

Then,  Plaza de Mayo  was and is witnessing new victorious presidents, de facto overthrows,  hunters , helicopter escapes and marches of all kinds.  She has mothers and grandmothers of her own . Everything that impacts the political and social universe takes place there.

The  Obelisk , on the other hand, is always surrounded by a more festive aura: there the fans of each team gather when there is a significant sporting triumph, and dresses in celestial and white every time the team performs any feat.

These places, so representative of us and our history, each have a particular meaning. In  Plaza de Mayo , we can talk to you in front of our most important representative: the current president listens from there what we have to tell him. All this with the Church as a witness, from the  Cathedral . In the  Obelisk  we are free: we can jump, run and scream in the immensity of the widest avenue in the world, around that structure so like a porteña postcard that projects us into the sky itself.
