The Grito de Independencia, also known as the Grito de Dolores, represents for Mexicans the beginning of the War of Independence, proclaimed by Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, to rise up in arms against the Spanish colonizers and oppressors at dawn on September 16. from 1810, in Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato. This date constitutes one of the most deeply rooted celebrations of Mexicans in the world.
And although last night the State Government held the celebration in a ceremony with 1,500 guests, who were mobilized in a controlled manner in trucks, many voices agree that this party had to be postponed due to the pandemic and the risks of contagion, but not only because of That, but because the little resource that has been invested in the austere party could well have been channeled to other actions.
The survey carried out by Poligrama places the Grito de Independencia as one of the most important celebrations, a tradition that reinforces the identity of the Mexican and that, in other less risky conditions, mobilizes masses and provokes countless celebrations, coexistence, an authentic party that extols the Mexican party spirit. Only today, in the midst of this pandemic that does not end, the restrictions are many, which is why the State Government was forced to resort to special guests, citizens of the different popular colonies.
