The Mexican Revolution is the armed movement that began in 1910 to end the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz and officially ended with the promulgation of the new Constitution of the Mexican United States of 1917 .
Under the command of Francisco I. Madero , in different parts of the Republic the battle cry “Real Democracy, no reelction” made people raise their arms. Also the nation, in addition to the civil and political rights, demanded democratic and social principles essential as: equality, justice, equity and freedom .
The Mexican Revolution laid the foundation for building a socially democratic nation .
At six o’clock in the evening of Sunday November 20, 1910 , accepting the provisions of Francisco I. Madero in the Plan of San Luis , some groups took up arms against the regime of Porfirio Diaz.
While in isolation, in subsequent weeks were appearing numerous and compelling uprisings. Madero could see that his call was effective and that, little by little, people began to walk the path of democracy and justice .
