MEXICO, Sept 16 (Prinsa Latina) The President of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, today dedicated the cry of independence that Miguel Hidalgo made 211 years ago in the Diocese of Dolores Guanajuato, to sovereignty, freedom and justice.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the traditional party has followed Mexicans from their homes, broadcast on radio and television, although many have gone downtown to see this year’s show better, which is impressive.

It was about dropping a video titled Mexico-Tenochtitlan and then another from the same new technology, to close with fireworks and a piece of music.

Video shooting is the use of projectors to display animations on real surfaces with an artistic effect and out of the ordinary, in this case the National Palace, the cathedral, other buildings and the pier.

Before the Gretto, the President and his wife, Beatriz Gutierrez Muller, walked the interior corridors of the first floor of the National Palace and, after saluting and receiving the Mexican flag, came out to the central balcony overlooking the Zocalo Plate, where the band of honor was formed as the sole eyewitnesses to the ceremony.

Once there, and the president crossed his chest with the presidential sash, he delivered chants that began with the traditional references to Hidalgo, José Maria Morelos y Pavon, Ignacio Allende, Leona Vicario, and Vicente Guerrero.

He also named other heroes in New Spain’s quest for independence that began on the night of the 15th and the beginning of the morning of September 16 in Dolores, and ended with victory on September 27, 1821.

The president included other vivas, this time dedicated to general patriotic concepts such as freedom, justice, equality, democracy, honesty, sovereignty, universal brotherhood, love of neighbor and the cultures of pre-Spanish Mexico, closed as traditionally with ÁViva México! It is repeated three times.

Then the original bell with which Hidalgo called the parishioners, installed on the central balcony of the palace since the last century, sounded, and immediately a military band translated the national anthem, accompanied by a choir.

The culmination of a flashy and emotional celebration, colorful fireworks lit up the capital’s sky.

This was the third time Lopez Obrador fired in his two-year and nine-month tenure, which began on December 1, 2018.

Tomorrow there will be a military parade simulating the entry of the Trigarante army into the capital, more than 600 people who have not been tried for several years will be released, as well as a day off for the people.
