Revolution Remembered in Cozumel

Islanders celebrated Mexican Revolution Day, this week, with colorful patriotic parades.

The events marked the 106th anniversary of the Mexican Revolutionary Movement and the call to arms made in 1910.

Francisco I. Madero called on Mexicans to rise up against the dictatorship of General Porfirio Díaz Mori, who had been in power for some 30 years, on November 20, 1910.

The ensuing battles and struggles for power lasted almost 10 years. A revolutionary period when alliances and leaders kept changing, and attempts at stable government failed.

Relative stability was finally reached in 1920, with the presidency of Álvaro Obregón who stayed in power for 4 years.

The Revolution had cost more than a million Mexican lives and totally disrupted the country's economy.

Today, Mexicans remember the lives of lost heroes and celebrate the Revolution with traditional costumes, patriotic events and displays by children's groups and the emergency services.
