Mexican President Andres Manuel Lpez Obrador today apologized for the 110-year-old massacre of Chinese in Dora. The massacres, known as the Lopez Obrador Minor Genocide, were committed by factions that involved themselves in the Mexican Revolution.
This was reported by the Andhra Pradesh company. In three days, 303 people were massacred, half of the Chinese community in Dora at the time.
“I am saddened to say that even after this small genocide, members of the Chinese community continued to be punished and murdered, whether for racist purposes or for the purpose of plundering them,” Lopez Obrador said. According to him, this discrimination was based on the widespread stereotypes faced by the Chinese at the time.
The Mexican president said his country was grateful for the brotherhood shown by China during the Govt-19 epidemics. Mexico, which ranks fourth in cov-19 deaths, has ordered about 29 million doses of cov-19 vaccine in Beijing, of which ten million have so far been obtained.
The Chinese ambassador listened to the Mexican president’s speech, according to which the two countries are strategic partners today. According to statistics, China is Mexico’s second largest trading partner and the volume of mutual trade reaches $ 90 billion (1.9 trillion crowns).
A significant number of Chinese workers settled in Mexico in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of them worked on construction and operations in the railways and other sectors. Doreen, one of the most important railway stations, is one of the most important in the Chinese community. Some Chinese came to Mexico because the United States enacted a law in 1882 that made it very difficult and in many cases impossible for Chinese workers to enter US territory.
The Dorian massacre began at the beginning of the Mexican Revolution, which erupted in 1910 and lasted for about ten years. In mid-May 1911, cities important in controlling the railroad toward the United States were captured by revolutionary forces. They also carried out Chinese massacres from May 13 to 15. The fall of the city played a role in the fate of Mexican President Porbrio Diaz, who soon resigned and settled down. (CDK)
