Parque Salesiano, Santa Julia


Felipe Santiago Carrillo Puerto (1874 - 1924) was a politician, journalist and revolutionary socialist. He was assassinated during his term as Governor of Yucatán from 1922 to 1924. Carrillo Puerto was active during the Caste War (1847-1915). Being partly Maya descent, he spoke the Mayan language, and led the removal of a fence intended to keep Maya people away from their ancestral lands. This landed him briefly in prison. He's especially well-remembered for the struggle for the welfare and rights of the Maya people as well as for supporting women's suffrage. As governor of Yucatán, he made his first public speech in the Mayan language. He was overthrown by rebels associated with the De La Huerta regime in Mexico City. 11 people were executed in a cemetery in Merida, among them Carrillo Puerto and three of his brothers.
