case of emergency. They were usually summoned by the town council, but only the most important ones would get such invitation, thus leaving aside low class Creoles, aboriginal people, women, slaves, people of mixed race, and many others.
1810: Four hundred and fifty invitations were distributed among the most important neighbors and authorities of the capital city. The guest list was prepared by the Town Council with prominency as the only criterion in mind. However, Agustín Donado, mate to French and Beruti, the one in charge of printing said invitations, printed so many more invitations that he ended up distributing them among the Creoles too. Tuesday 22nd May 1810: Out of the four hundred and fifty invited neighbors and authorities, only around two hundred and fifty attended. French and Beruti, commanding six hundred armed men carrying knives, blunderbusses, and rifles, managed to take control of the access to the town square so as to make sure the town council got taken by Creoles. That open town council went on from morning until midnight. The main topic of discussion was the legitimacy of the government and the viceroy’s authority. It was eventually decided by the vast majority that the viceroy was to be divested of his power.
May 1810: After the Open Town Council came to an end, several notices were posted across the city to inform the population of the creation of a committee and of the summoning of province representatives while it also urged people not to cause a breach of the peace.

This caused unrest once again among the working classes and the popular militias, which led to the occupation of the town square by a mob that saw this cunning argument as mockery towards the will of the Open Town Council. Some soldiers rebel against this decision and refuse to repress the agitators. Friday 25th May 1810: Because of the delays in reaching a final decision, in the course of the morning the mob gathered around Plaza Mayor (currently known as Plaza de Mayo) and started yelling:
