Mexican Muralist Movement

 

The Mexican muralism is one of the most distinctive artistic genres in Latin America. It has its origin in the Mexican Revolution of 1910. However, it is until 1921 when it formally starts. At this time, Jose Vasconcelos, a leading Mexican intellectual, took office as Secretary of Public Education under the government of President Alvaro Obregón who commissioned different artists to paint a series of murals on the walls of the National Secretariat and the National Preparatory School. From that time on, the Mexican Muralism begins acquiring international recognition, not only as an artistic genre, but as a social and political movement of resistance and identity, with images through its diverse stylistic components that portray issues related to the revolution, the class struggle and Mexican indigenus people.

STATEMENT FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO ON THE DEBATE ON IMMIGRATION REFORM IN THE UNITED STATES

The Government of Mexico welcomes the principles for a comprehensive reform of the immigration system of the United States that have been laid out both by President Barack Obama and a bipartisan group of US Senators. It also acknowledges the valuable input that has been provided in recent weeks by numerous economic groups and civil society organizations.

The Government of Mexico recognizes the commitment shown by an increasing number of US actors to ensure that the legal frameworks in North America reflect the region’s demographic realities, the existing complementarities between our economies, the need for a prosperous, competitive, secure and efficient border, and the family links and shared values between our societies. The priority of protecting the rights of every individual, regardless of his or her immigration status, has rightly been included at the core of this debate.

Immigration policy is a federal domestic issue in the United States. Nevertheless, it has an effect on the lives of millions of individuals living within that and other countries. The Government of Mexico will continue to respectfully promote an informed discussion of the many dimensions of this subject, and to protect the rights of its citizens abroad.
