Loyalty Day is celebrated every October 17 and is the main commemorative date of Peronism. The day commemorates a great worker and union mobilization in the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires on October 17, 1945, which demanded and obtained the release of then Colonel Juan Domingo Perón, arrested a few days earlier. The event is considered the birth of Peronism, as well as one of the most important moments in the history of the Argentine labor movement, because it marked the constitution of the working class as a leading subject in Argentine history. It is also called Peronist Loyalty Day or simply October 17.
