For the government, 2015 is the “Year of General
José María Morelos y Pavón,” one of the greatest heroes in the history of
Mexico. He is a liberator we recall with great respect and admiration.
Today marks the 250th anniversary of his birth. And precisely today, we celebrate the 200 years
since his death.
Two centuries later, his ideology is still valid
and his example is an inspiration for the administration I lead. Following the great legacy of Morelos, Mexicans
today are promoting a Mexico at peace, a Mexico of rights, laws and
In order to achieve an inclusive Mexico, “We are
breaking down the obstacles and barriers that prevent young people, women and
any Mexican from achieving their goals and writing their own success stories.”
Just as the Constitution of Apatzingán established
the freedom to work, today we are promoting a prosperous Mexico that generates
employment and professional options so that every man or woman can use his or
her knowledge and talents.
