The commemoration will be initiated this evening with a welcome by Mexican Consul Carlos Flores Vizcarra. There will be an introduction to the history of the revolution and the screening of a film that portrays the conflict. Tuesday evening, a choral group will sing songs relevant to the revolution, and a second film will be screened.
