POSTER SHOW ON THE “BILL OF RIGHTS”
A poster show on the “Bill of Rights” on display at the Tres Cruces Bus Terminal & Shopping Mall.

July 1, 2004


In commemoration of the 228th Anniversary of the Independence of the United States of America a poster show on the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution will be on display at Tres Cruces Bus Terminal & Shopping Mall in Montevideo. The exhibit opened on Saturday, July 3 at the terminal’s main hall and will close Friday, July 9.

In 1791, the states ratified the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution, commonly called the Bill of Rights. Many think that the Bill of Rights has transcended its historical roots since the concept of individual rights is one of the basic components of democracy.
