  • Description

    Argentina's President Maria Estela Peron, accompanied by members of her government and other dignitaries, attended the foundation ceremony in Buenos Aires on Saturday (23 November) of a shrine for the nation's national heroes.

    During the ceremony, President Peron unveiled a foundation stone -- the first stage of construction which will eventually become the last resting place of -- among others -- Senora Peron's late husband, President Juan Peron.

    The memorial shrine will be near Palermo Park in Buenos Aires.

    At the ceremony, the President was accompanied by Social Welfare Minister Jose Lopez Rega and Labour Minister Ricardo Otero, as well as prominent trade union leaders -- among them Lorenzo Miguel, secretary of the metallurgical trade union.

    SYNOPSIS: President Maria Estela Peron threads her way through waiting crowds in Buenos Aires, to attend the foundation ceremony of a new shrine dedicated to Argentina's national heroes.

    Beneath the national flag, church and civil leaders give a blessing to the foundation stone of the shrine.

    This shrine, when completed, will become the last resting place of some of the great figures of Argentina's recent history -- including Senora Peron's husband, the late President Juan Peron.

    The new shrine is in the Palermo Park area of the Argentina capital.

    With Ministers and other dignitaries in the audience, Senora Peron inaugurated the shrine.

    Many hundreds of people had attended the ceremony, and they gave Senora Peron a warm but dignified send-off when she drove back to the Presidential palace.
