On November 25

On this day in ...
... 1911 (100 years ago today), Mexican revolutionary leader Emiliano Zapata announced the Plan de Ayala, "which stated that the goal of the revolution was for land to be redistributed among the poor." He and his supporter then fought against a government that had come into power as a result of a joint rebellion earlier in the year. Zapata (right) would continue to fight until his assassination on April 10, 1919. (photo credit)
