    EL GRITO (DE LA INDEPENDENCIA)
    At 11pm on 15th September every year, the President of Mexico appears on the balcony of the National Palace in the capital and begins the Independence Day celebrations by addressing the crowds packed in the Plaza Mayor before him with the shout “Mexicanos, viva México!”. This commemorates the night in 1810 (actually the early morning of 16th September) when the father of Mexican independence, the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, used these words at the close of a speech delivered to his parishioners in the small provincial town of Dolores (now Dolores Hidalgo), in the state of Guanajuato. In the address he urged the people of the town, who were mainly poor Indians and lower-class “mestizos”, to rebel against Spanish colonial rule, and he then led them on his unsuccessful military campaign, which ended in his execution the following year. The president's re-enactment of the “ grito de Dolores” is echoed in similar events in towns and cities across the nation.
