Republic of Northern Mexico Gains More Interest on Facebook Following Catalonia Vote

The Republic of Northern Mexico (Facebook)

Separatist sentiment in Catalonia, Spain, has spread to northern Mexico where a movement has formed to defend norteño (northern) pride and culture and advocate for the creation of the Republic of Northern México.

Although a Facebook page advancing the cause was created before last Sunday’s vote on independence for Catalonia, the page has seen more activity since.

Proponents say the main reasons for creating a new country from nine of Mexico’s 32 states are the educational lag and poverty of the south, centralism exerted from the Valley of México and the major contribution to Mexico’s Gross Domestic Product by the northern states.

The new republic would consist of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sonora, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Durango, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.

The administrators of the Facebook page maintain that articles 39 and 40 of the constitution would allow their secession.

The first of those states that “national sovereignty resides essentially and originally in the people ... the people at all times have the inalienable right to alter or modify their form of government.”

The second states that “it is the will of the Mexican people to organize themselves into a federal, democratic, representative republic composed of free and sovereign states in all that concerns their internal government but united in a federation.”
