20 Revolution Day
November 20th.

November 20th commemorates the 1910 revolution of Mexico.  This was a revolution to overthrow dictator Porfirio Diaz.  With his reign, Diaz brought financial and political stability, new industries, as well as railways.  However, the laborers and peasants weren’t satisfied with this way of life.  In the early days of 1909 Francisco Madero founded the “Anti Re-Election Party? This party fought strongly for democracy and liberty.  In 1910, Madero ran for President.  Porfirio Diaz, under tremendous pressure, ordered Madero to be arrested.  In prison, Madero learned that Diaz had elected himself President of Mexico.  Madero escaped from prison and denounced the electoral process and called for appointed governors.  Uprising began all over Mexico and eventually Diaz was forced to resign.  In 1911, Francisco Madero was elected President, and several years later killed by a traitorous revolutionary.  November 20th is celebrated with parades, fiestas, fireworks, speeches and rodeos.
