BUENOS AIRES. ARGENTINA. The towns of Tigre in the province of Buenos Aires and Rivadavia in the province of Mendoza have approved their commitment to peace through the use of their appropriate legal instruments. Mil Milenios de Paz, an organization that works for peace in Argentina presented the initiative as part of an agreement signed with UNESCO.
This action will tackle the problem of violence through its more structural causes, prompting plans for the prevention of violence and the promotion of peace in the municipal area. In the city of Tigre, the Honourable Council, through Decree 81/2010, approved the proposal last December 27. In the city of Rivadavia, the decision was adopted through resolution 61/2011 of the municipal mayor, Juan Genaro del Río. The decree states that the municipality intends to adhere to, observe, plan and take action to promote a better quality of life for Rivadavienses. Actions include those related to achieving a healthy and peaceful coexistence and an environment of solidarity.
The postscript of the Letter of Peace addressed to the UN says that "it is evident, therefore, that in any country tomorrow's citizens, whoever they are, if they are happy to exist," It is evident, therefore, that in each country, tomorrow's citizens, whoever they may be, will always be happy with what yesterday's governments did for better or worse, since they exist due to these actions. Therefore, the contemporaries' welfare is the most important target for our present day governments.” Two new cities joined the initiative to work for peace. It is certain that these actions developing today will be viewed with joy by the citizens of tomorrow.
