A Dictator losing power:
During the 20th century, Mexico was a dictatorship lead by Porfirio Diaz. A dictatorship is a government where one takes control by power, and Porfirio was a mestizo turned soilder, turned scholar, turned president .
There were more people living towards the south at that time.
The people hated Porfirio for a few reasons. He did not truly support a republic and he did not support them, he only benefited the rich. In one particular incident he imprisoned a candidate from one of his mock elections. That very person would end up rekindling hopes in the hearts of thousands, his name was Francisco Mandero.
This guy is known as Mandero
Francisco Mandero was a revolutionary and a President of Mexico. He believed in a moderate democracy. A type of democracy where all people take part in government affairs.
