Juarez Mexico Art
We turn to the city of Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, where we are once again focusing on the world's most notorious drug cartel, El Chapo. Located on the border between Mexico and the US, Ciudadanos became a city of displacement, extortion, social and economic crisis at the height of the violence in 2010. Mexican drug violence has become synonymous with it, and it is predictable that it will do little to boost tourism. The city, once a hub for export-oriented assembly plants, has grown significantly in recent years, with an increase in visitor numbers from the United States and Canada.
Today, La Casa Verde still stands, but it is militarised, while girls and women continue to be kidnapped and murdered with impunity.
The Mexican president Benito Juarez, who was based there from 1865 to 66, renamed himself El Paso del Norte, formerly Ciudad de la Puebla, after his death. In Mexican society, the outbreak of the coronavirus was binational in nature, with the tragedy claiming victims in both the United States and Mexico, while setting records for the number of deaths in one of the world's most populous countries. It was a tragic event, but it changed Mexican societies, not only in the United States, but also in Mexico itself. In the mid-1960s, "El Paso de los Nortes" was officially renamed "Ciudad de Juarez" in honor of its founder, in response to the influenza outbreak in El Salvador and subsequent outbreaks in Guatemala and Honduras.
Human rights lawyers and others pointed to the rise in feminicide, which has killed more than 1,000 women and girls in Mexico in the past five years, and human rights lawyers noted, among other things, that "feminicide is on the rise. Mexican society and endeavored to recognize the role of women as victims of violence, not only in violence against women, but also in sexual violence in general.
In 1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, and suddenly we were in the midst of a war between the United States and Mexico for the territory of the Aztec Empire.
When the US border project with Mexico was conceived, we focused on El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, but these cities are very different. Tijuana was founded in 1889, just a year after Ju Suarez, and has worked hard to bring security and tourism back to its city. In bad years, it is considered one of Mexico's worst cities for crime and violence and the most dangerous city on the border. Known as "El Paso Texas" and "Juarez Mexico," the two towns were once two villages that emerged from a 17th-century settlement but are not located in either country.
On the US side of the border, the Juarez River may be best known for crossing into Mexico, but it is also home to the largest concentration of illegal immigrants in the country.
Juarez is located on the Mexican mainland and is known for its home of the Mexican vaquero culture (cowboy culture). The Mexican Revolution was based in the city of Juarez, the capital of the state of Chihuahua in southern Mexico. It was the site of one of Mexico's most important political and military battles and the birthplace of President Felipe Calderon's government.
This meant that Mexico returned to the US via El Paso, Texas, on the way to Mexico City, the capital of the state of Chihuahua.
On our tour we will come across the old Mercado Juarez, or "Juarez Market," which has been an integral part of the city's trade for over 66 years.
You will also find one of the 276 monuments marking the international border that stretches from El Paso, Texas, through Juarez to San Diego and Tijuana. The monument, which was inaugurated on October 9, 2004 in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, is sponsored by the Mexican state of Espanol and the US Customs and Border Protection Agency. Located on the border, the museum takes visitors through the history of Mexico's war against the United States and its still-moving aftermath. Parallel to this presentation, a solo exhibition entitled "Hotel Ju Suarez" will be shown in Mexico City.
One of my favorite things about Juarez is the interactive public exhibits that are displayed in the city streets, as well as in public parks and other public spaces. Most of these exhibits are in Spanish and English, but some productions during my visit focused on the Mexican Revolution and included over 20 dances performed by the Ballet Folklorico de CiudadJuarez.
Next to the mission is a monument to Juan Rodriguez Juarez, one of Mexico's greatest political leaders, revered as a force in his transition to a democratic society. This monument is one of the most popular political figures in Mexico and is the first "Mexican" figure to be commemorated in a city monument. Like Villalpando before him, he received the highest honor of the Mexican Revolution, the Nobel Peace Prize, and the United Nations Medal of Honor.
