Nestor Kirchner passed away in his home of Santa Cruz at the age of 60 from a heart attack. Kirchner was a key policy maker in the government of his wife, Cristina Kirchner. During his term, the country registered the biggest continuous economic growth, declining poverty from 42.7% in 2003 to 16.3% in 2007. The people of Argentine will be grieving over Nestor Kirchner’s death for the next two days, closing down shows and events. If you have already purchased any tickets to shows or events, I would recommend calling the venue to see what actions need to be taken or to reschedule the event. As a secretary of Unasur, Kirchner had many relations with presidents of Unasur nations which include, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Due to these relations, many presidents and other important figures will be visiting Buenos Aires to mourn the ex-president’s death. If you desire, you could visit Casa Rosada to express sorrow for this tragedy of the Argentine people, and to visit the body of Nestor Kirchner.
