I thought that no military activity was to be conducted in Antarctica. After reading through the bases that are there I found this one which is run by the Argentine Armed Forces.

Can anyone help me understand why this isn't a breech of the Antarctic Treaty.

This from your first link explains it:

Although maintained by the Argentine Armed Forces, as all Argentine bases on Antarctica, it is operated by the civilian agency Instituto Antartico Argentino
