    2010, Mexico And The Bicentennial Of Its Independence....

     

    2010, Mexico will commemorate the bicentennial of its Independence movement and the centennial of its Revolution with an extensive program of events.  All Mexicans and foreign citizens alike are invited to participate in these events to learn about and reflect on Mexico’s past.

                        These celebrations are not just about remembering important dates; they are about reviving the values and ideals that shaped our nation. The goal of the Organizing Committee is to give a modern meaning to our history.

                       The history of which we speak is not exclusive but inclusive.

    All Mexicans are part of our history and, therefore, everyone throughout the country and all those who live outside of Mexico’s borders have the right to interpret it freely

    .We will celebrate Mexico’s history in every corner of the country and abroad through a variety of means.

     

    We want the dreams and promises of those who came before us to be valued.                   This celebration is an effort to inspire all Mexicans and all  interested individuals everywhere to learn about the origin and context of the Independence and Revolutionary movements and their impact on our lives today, and to encourage the ethical and civic values that nourish our harmonious coexistence and that strengthen the nation.

                       These bicentennial and centennial celebrations are the occasion for a big fiesta that all of society should make its own. Let the 2010 festivities bring us a new understanding of our past.

    thanks,
