Democracy Plaza

Plaza de la DemocraciaSiglo XVIEn 1578 los miembros de la Compañía de Jesús consiguieron la autorización para adquirir y demoler una parte de la casa ubicada en la acera poniente de la manzana en que originalmente establecieron su residencia y más tarde el colegio del Espíritu Santo, con la finalidad de formar una plazuela al frente del templo primitivo. En mayo de 1910, Don Francisco I. Madero (1873-1913) y sus más cercanos colaboradores arribaron a la ciudad de Puebla. La noche previa a la concentración que tuvo lugar al día siguiente, un numeroso grupo de ciudadanos y de estudiantes del Colegio del Estado se congregaron en este lugar para dar la bienvenida al líder del movimiento antirreleccionista. Desde uno de los balcones del Hotel Jardín (hoy Hotel Colonial), situado al sur de la plazuela, Madero dirigió
un mensaje a sus simpatizantes, en el que afirmó: "Esta manifestación que me hacéis, demuestra el grado de tiranía que soportáis". Desde entonces este lugar ha sido escenario de actos de protesta organízados
por estudiantes y grupos en el curso de sus luchas, por lo que no es casual que este emblemático espacio citadino se encuentre íntima y simbólicamente asociado a la lucha de los poblanos por la democracia.

Century
In 1578 the members of the Compañía de Jesús (Jesuits) got the authorization to acquire and demolish a part of the house that was located in the west sidewalk of the block, where originally they established their
residence and later on the Colegio del Espíritu Santo, with the purpose of forming a small square in front of the primitive temple. On may 1910, Don Francisco I. Madero (1873-1913) and his closest collaborators arrived at the city of Puebla. The previous night to the concentration that took place the next day, a big group of citizens and students of the Colegio del Estado were congregated in this place to welcome the leader of the antirrteleccionista (sic, antireeleccionista or anti-reelection) movement. In one of the balconies of the Hotel Jardín (nowadays Hotel Colonial), located in the south of the small square, Madero gave a speech to his sympathizers, saying: "This manifestation that you give me, shows the grade of tyranny that you suffer". Since then this place has been used for protest acts organized by students' and other groups during their struggles, that is why it is not a coincidence that this space is linked to the struggle for the democracy by the people of Puebla.
