A fireworks market in Mexico has exploded, leading to dozens killed. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“When he was a kid, Jose Guadalupe Solano Sanchez, who goes by the nickname of “Doc Pirotecnia,” would hear the boom of the fireworks on the streets of Tultepec, Mexico, and imagine that it was the sound of a mysterious and exciting giant creature. He fell in love with watching the pyrotechnics light up the sky.
“It’s a magical, marvelous town,” he told The Washington Post. “We are a people of artisans, musicians, pyrotechnics. It’s a form of expression, of art, of making people happy,” he added.
For many of its residents, Tultepec does have a certain magic to it. On each of the town’s many religious holidays, fireworks illuminate the skies, the whistles and blasts signaling a night of music and celebration. Crowds flock to the town — located just north of Mexico City and considered the country’s capital of pyrotechnics — for its biggest festival of the year in March, just to see the castles of fire and the brightly colored bulls parading through the streets.”
