      LONDON CELEBRATING LATIN AMERICAN INDEPENDENCES

      On Wednesday 22 London started the celebrations of the Latin American bicentenaries. Around 2,000 people were present at the Scoop by City Hall.

      It was the first time that the London Assembly’s Open Theatre was dedicated to celebrate the anniversaries of the Latin American independences.

      The event was organised by Ola Latina (arts) and Minka News (media). The two organisations and Nicky Price organised on 20 June a massive Carnaval Latino which was part of the Tottenham Carnival (attended by 80,000 people, according to the BBC).

      The anniversaries of the Andean Bolivarian independences are 5’ July (Venezuela), 20’ July (Colombia), 28’ July (Peru), 6’ August (Bolivia) and 10’ August (Ecuador).  

      The bicentenaries of the first independent proclamations are 25 May and 16 July (Bolivia) and 10 August (Ecuador).

      Next year (2010) is 200 years of the independence of Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Western California. It is also 200 years since Portugal-Brazil where liberated from France.
