Every date in history has seen memorable events occur, and December 9 is no different. This day is particularly significant in international politics since South Korean President Park Geun-Hye was deposed on December 9, 2016. Apart from this, the state of Tanganyika (later Tanzania) gained independence in 1964 Additionally, December 9 also marks the birthday of Dame Judi Dench, loved by millions for her roles as M in James Bond films and Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespeare In Love. Without further ado, let’s go back to the significant events that took place on December 9th.

Lady Judi Dench is born

One of the finest actresses in the motion picture industry, Dame Judi Dench was born on December 9, 1934. The actress, who was already a force to be reckoned with in the theater, impressed everyone even more with her role as longtime M in the James Bond Films. Dench starred as the head of MI6 in Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig’s Bond films, cementing his place as one of the show’s most iconic characters.

Tanganyika gained independence

The state, which was placed under United Nations trusteeship by the British government in 1947, chose Julius Nyerere as its first president. The country merged with the island of Zanzibar in 1964 to form Tanzania.

Smallpox eradicated

About 10 years after the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a smallpox vaccination program across the world, the disease was officially declared eradicated.

Declared anti-Semitism as a form of racism

The United Nations General Assembly has declared anti-Semitism to be a form of racism. The resolution was adopted by consensus on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the international convention against genocide. However, anti-Semitism, which refers to discrimination or hostility towards Jews as a religious or racial group, remains widespread in some parts of the world.

South Korean President Park Geun-Hye impeached

On this day in 2016, South Korea’s parliament voted to impeach then-president Park Geun-Hye after allegations of corruption rocked the government. The political leader left office in 2017 after South Korea’s Constitutional Court upheld parliament’s decision to impeach her.
