Mexico City, epicenter of the celebration and great protagonist of that heroic deed initiated by Francisco I Madero on a day like today but in 1910, dawned armored with a deployment of almost three thousand policemen.
This was in order to guarantee civic order in the traditional military parade and the official ceremony headed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
The capital’s Zócalo, from where the military blocks depart on their route to Campo Marte, dawned with the military formations in the midst of a cold of almost zero degrees Celsius.
However, this did not prevent people from coming early on the streets 5 de Mayo, Juarez Avenue and Paseo de la Reforma, to see the parade from the front line.
On November 20, 1910 began the historic armed movement that marks the history of this country as the second fundamental event in the independence and national sovereignty, after a century of the Grito de Dolores of 1810 launched by the priest Miguel Hidalgo to free the country from Spain.
The 1910 revolution is known as a popular movement against landowners, agrarian, for the right to land, at the time of the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz known as the Porfiriato.
