We travel to República Oriental del Uruguay on the context of "Cultural Twining" to pay "Homage to Trinidad Guevara", on the 214th anniversary of his birthday at Villa Santo Domingo of Soriano. Accompanied by a remarkable delegation of artists, this became an unforgettable journey.
"First International encounter for the day of the music"
At Villa Soriano, República Oriental del Uruguay, we gathered, together with the local hosts, the "1st International Encounter for the Day of the Music". Its main goal was to promote the human contact and to strenghten links between both nations.

We gave a recognition plaque to the Major, Lic. Javier Utermark, who welcomed us at Dolores and gave us a warm welcome.
Villa Soriano is the most ancient city at the República Oriental del Uruguay, been also the one who gives its name to the Department. It was a great pleasure to discover every corner that keeps a bit of their history.
Located on the mouth of the Negro river with the Uruguay river, it was founded by the franciscans on 1624 with the name of Santo Domingo Soriano
Walking with this area we found out that there you can get the most quality harvest of Uruguay, most of them are wheat, soy, barley, sunflower, corn and sorghum.

Conference with Dr. Hilda Molina
Hilda Molina y Morejon (Ciego de Ávila, Cuba, 1942) is a Cuban doctor who was among the founders of the International Center for Neurological Restoration (CIREN) and deputy to the National Assembly of People's Power. Despite occupying relatively comfortable positions within the Cuban hierarchy, in 1994, Dr. Molina broke with the communist government of Fidel Castro. In 1994 (the medical Molina) presented its resignation to all its positions, to the front of CIREN, to its bank in the National Assembly and the militancy in the Communist Party of Cuba by disenchantment with the government and in protest, before what, according to his point of view, was the official policy, aimed at, among other things, "dollarizing" the medical institution created by it and giving preferential treatment to foreign clients. (On the same way Molina)
He repeatedly requested the Cuban authorities the so-called "exit permit" to travel to Argentina, where his son Roberto Quiñones, also a neurosurgeon, resides. For being what the Cuban government calls "carrier of secrets", that is, knowing confidential information about the (Cuban) state, its exit was not authorized. Subsequently, in October 1996, Hilda Molina returned to the Minister of Health the decorations she had received from the Cuban Revolution.
The case of Hilda Molina has provoked tensions between the governments of Cuba and Argentina. President Néstor Kirchner personally interceded with the Cuban authorities, sending a letter to Fidel Castro asking him to authorize the doctor to leave Cuba. Fidel Castro's response was an invitation for the family to travel to Cuba, ruling out any possibility of their departure (the possibility of authorizing the departure of the doctor from the country).
In October 2006, former Czech President Vaclav Havel sent Raúl Castro a letter requesting the release of the doctor. The letter was also signed by several politicians such as the former Prime Minister of Canada Kim Campbell, and the Polish Bronisław Geremek, former deputy, and Minister of Foreign Affairs between 1997 and 2001. After the authorization of the Cuban government, on Sunday, June 14, 2009, Hilda Molina arrived in Argentina and met with her family.

No Bullying - No Grooming
The School Bullying Bullying Act was presented, which we support in the protection of children. We say NO TO BULLYING.
"Day of Preventive Strategies of Informative Crimes".
The "grooming" is a series of behaviors deliberately undertaken by an adult in order to win the friendship of a minor by creating an emotional connection with it, in order to decrease the child's inhibitions and to be sexually abused. In some cases, you can look for the induction of the child into the world of child prostitution or the production of pornographic material.
Day on violence in football
We participate in this Conference held at the National Congress, together with National Deputies and soccer referees.

We support and fight for the National Guide Dog Law
We held a talk-debate to support the approval of the National Guide Dog Law and the importance of its regulation for blind people and the development of these instructional animals. We contacted the only Trainer of Guiding Dogs of Argentina. He belongs to a family living in England in which two of his children are blind people and users of guide dogs. The Legislator Silvia Majdalani participated, who carried out this project, Argentine users, representatives of canine institutions trained on the subject and people interested in this problem. This Law was sanctioned, although it still continues without regulation.
The fight for the law of assisted fertilization.
Long before the Congress of the Nation will enact Law 26,862 of "Medically Assisted Reproduction", we have done a great job for years, where we meet with health professionals, deputies and senators and others interested in this problem, to be able to take them together forward this bill.
We seek that the bill will guarantee full access to medical procedures and techniques of assisted reproduction, and from June 5, 2013, with its sanction, both public health medical services and social and prepaid work began to cover these treatments.
