  • Description

    President Hector Campora of Argentina reviewed a military parade in the capital Buenos Aires on Monday (July 9) to mark Argentina's National Day.

    This year's parade was much shorter than the traditional parade. Indeed President Campora announced that as an austerity measure there would be no parade at all this year. Later it was decided to hold a smaller one than usual.

    Security was very strict and soldiers were placed five yards (metres) apart along much of the route of the march. But there were no incidents.

    Two days before, ???on Saturday (July 7) President Campora criticised world powers for seeking to disarm other nations while retaining weapons themselves. He strongly hinted that Argentina might seek to drastically modernise its own weaponry.
