Women Are Marrying Trees In Mexico And It Is For A Good Reason.

by Prince Chandran

A group of women  from Oaxaca, Mexico had mass marriage ceremony where they tied knot to trees. All the brides are women activists.

The main reason behind mass marriage was actually a protest against illegal logging, a serious problem in Mexico, where a third of the land area is covered by forest.

A tree bride and activist Dolores Leycigi  said that it was a serious statement about planets future.

“Marrying a tree is a way of protesting, to say that we need to stop exterminating Mother Earth every day, every minute, every second,” she said.

Mexico Tree Marriage

“I thought it was very interesting that we have a commitment, not only with this tree, but with all of nature,” she says “I thought about how much we’ve already damaged nature, so I decided to come and get married.”

 

Marry a tree” began as a ritual of giving thanks to Mother Earth carried out by the organization “Bedani,” and later gave way to a symbolic wedding based on Inca customs where women and men “marry” trees in a rite led by Peruvian actor and environmentalist Richard Torres.
