The National Government, by promoting the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Independence of Colombia, wants to stimulate in the citizens the exercise of democracy and to motivate their participation in the construction of the national project which inspires the political constitution.
This commemoration will be the great public forum about values, ideas and themes which support our collective national project, which comprises liberty, autonomy, democracy, decentralization, citizenship, difference, diversity, multiculturalism, sustainable development and history.
We Colombians shall debate from the local, regional and national scenarios what we are and dream to be as a Nation. The Bicentennial leads us to think over our past and openly participate in a real “national dialogue”.
The programs and projects of the Institutions of the Government committed with the commemoration, propose that Colombians completely assume the condition of historical subjects, participants of the political, economical, social and cultural processes of our country. In this way, the citizens will rewrite, rethink and reinterpret the history and shall transform it in the light of our founding values, which are democracy and liberty.
Once the commemorative acts of the Bicentennial are over, the Nation shall discover itself as different, fairer and more communitarian.
The Bicentennial of Colombia should give us Colombians the right to be more and the duty to be more in the benefit of the country.
For the commemoration of this great event, on February, 2008 the President of the Republic, Alvaro Uribe Velez, through Decree 446 created the High Presidential Commission for the Bicentennial of the Independence and appointed Maria Cecilia Donado.
The Library Network of the Bank of the Republic, to mark the bicentenary of independence, wants to give all Colombians a space where you can read a number of documents produced from 1750 to 1850 in various places, instances and circumstances. We hope that many Colombians of all ages to find documents of interest here to start at least answers to the questions you have for the past. This space will be built from now, focusing first around 1810 and then extended back and forth and, where possible, deepening. It will not be exhaustive, but if we expect to have basic coverage for different regions of the country. Will in principle documents already printed and published.
We called the Independence period as a time deposit, especially for the production and searching for directions. The frequent references we refer schools, press, Botanical Expedition, Royal Library, Communards, Misiones, Reforms, gatherings, travel, chicha, chicken pox, councils, boards and conspiracies. It left us royal decrees and orders, periodicals, pamphlets and posters, paintings, sermons, relationships, and memorials, journals, manuals, plans, maps, speeches, trials, proclamations, constitutions and proceedings. In the period emerge multitude of speeches from various cities and towns, words acquire new meanings, proposes new legitimacy and identities of individuals and groups, are redrawing the map of social loyalties, political, and religious tensions are becoming more visible daily even within families. There are changes in the ways in which sesiente, says you live and what is public and social order. It is a time of invention of political subjects and sociability, new media like the press, and the establishment of many new places where we intervene in the political arena. But above all a time of many words and increased writing and reading.
That’s why we Bicentennial an opportunity to make available to different readerships, a repertoire of texts and images in different ways related to the processes of independence. We present the documents not because we believe they contain the truth or what “really happened”, but because they are contemporary records we have access. We hope your reading and analysis help to propose new questions from audiences readers better understand the diversity of processes in the period, their meanings and significance and to develop multiple stories from different points of view, spaces and subjects that may be able to contribute to articulate a representation of our past to the present.
