Remembrance day in gobal media

On March 24, 1976, a military junta under General Jorge Rafael Videla takes power in Argentina. He disbands parliament and suppresses all political parties and trade unions. In 2005 March 24th was declared public holiday by Néstor Kirchner's goverment (2003-2007).

Here you can see how global media conveys this important day for Argentinean history and, in some way, summarizes some of the most relevant facts related to the dictatorship. It could be a good example to analyze from anyone who were interested in studying how our memories are mediated and reconstructed by global media.
