Parade of November 20, what is celebrated?

Last Tuesday, November 20, there was a parade in tribute to what happened many years ago in the Mexican nation, it is a civic act of great importance, then we will give you a brief introduction of why the celebration.

On November 20, 1910 begins the armed conflict in Mexico known as the Mexican Revolution. Usually referred to as the “most important political and social event of the twentieth century,” the antecedents of that revolution go back to “the Porfiriato“.

A group of Liberals began the struggle with the main objective of overthrowing the current government’s dictatorship and obtaining justice for the people. Once the struggle was won, the workers were able to form unions and strike without fear of brutal reprisals. The peasants achieved the agrarian distribution that gave them back their lands and Mexico finally became governments based on institutions and not on caudillos who abused their power.

Nowadays, year after year a parade takes place where schools, secondary schools, high schools and some companies participate, where characteristic dances of the region are carried out, children with costumes of the characters of the Mexican Revolution, sports exercises, among others. activities. The event started from 9:00 in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon culminating in the main square of the town, it is important to recognize the participation and effort of all the students of the schools, who are the ones who give life to this important event.

    Yes this is a beautiful community,but perhaps people should be made aware of some of the health issues here. My 11 yr. old and my 19 yr old daughters have both contracted dengue. And this has been certified with blood tests. My neighbors wife here in la panita has zika. So amidst all the joys and happiness of living here there are dangers and concerns We are continually using bug sprays and more natural types of bug repellent,but the bugs still manage to get in a sting. Have a safe holiday.
