20 November - Revolution Day - National Holiday


On November 20, 1910, Francisco I. Madero called Mexicans to arms against the dictatorship of General Porfirio Díaz Mori, who had been in power for 40 years.

The ensuing battles and struggles for power lasted some 20 years. A revolutionary period when alliances and leaders kept changing, and attempts at stable government failed.

Relative stability was finally reached in 1920, with the presidency of Álvaro Obregón who stayed in power for 4 years.

The Revolution had cost more than a million Mexican lives and totally disrupted the country's economy.

Today, islanders remember the lives of lost heroes and celebrate the Revolution with traditional costumes, patriotic events and displays by childrens groups and the emergency services.
