Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Argentine Basque clubs have duly complied with the measures taken in the last hours by the national government in relation to the Coronavirus crisis and have canceled or postponed activities. But there are events of particular importance, at the regional or national level, such as the Dantzari's Aberri Eguna Meeting in Cañuelas on April 18 and 19 or the Buenos Aires Celebra on May 10, whose decision costs more to take. Both are events marked in red on the Basque calendar in Argentina. One month to go for the first and two months for the second.
This is the situation in relation to its celebration or not: Thus, taking into account the coronavirus prevention measures, Denak Bat de Cañuelas has decided not to hold the Dantzari's Aberri Eguna Meeting on the weekend of April 18 and 19 and reschedule it for later.
The other big gathering that is also in the organization stage is the 'Buenos Aires Celebrates the Basque Country', scheduled for Sunday, May 10. On its cancellation or change of date, Arantxa Anitua, president of the Laurak Bat Center, explains to EuskalKultura.eus that being a calendar drawn up by the City of Buenos Aires, it is governed by the measures taken by the Government and at the moment, the City has decided to postpone only the events of the next two weeks.
“We have asked for the postponement of our BAC, but we have not received a positive response, so for now it is still May 10," says Anitua. "The situation is very complicated and decisions are being made day by day. If the Municipality does not cancel or postpone it, we cannot do anything. Of course, as soon as we have any news, whatever it is, we will announce it, "explains the Lehendakari.
