On early Monday, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador inaugurated the exhibition ‘La Grandeza de Mexico’ (Mexico’s Greatness) in two venues, the Ibero-American Exhibition Hall at the Secretariat of Public Education in downtown Mexico City, and the National Museum of Anthropology at the Chapultepec Forest.

The main ceremony will begin at 20:00 hours, local time, and the bells of the Churches of the Archdiocese of Mexico will toll half an hour later announcing the consummation of Mexican Independence.

Cardinal Carlos Aguiar Retes, Archbishop Primate of Mexico, invited all parish priests, rectors of temples, chaplains and lay believers to ring the bells at full blast as a token of the joy and happiness of Mexicans.

Eleven days ago, President Lopez Obrador chanted from the presidential balcony of the National Palace a version of the Cry of Dolores’, a battle cry of the Mexican War of Independence from Spain, uttered by Priest Miguel Hidalgo, who proclaimed the independence, but this was consummated later with the entry of the Trigarante Army in Mexico City.
