Las Acordadas. Grabado de Jesús Escobedo.

Una herida más en el ya sangrante pueblo mexicano fueron las famosas Acordadas, a quienes el dolor popular dedicó sentidas canciones. Constituídas en guardias rurales las Acordadas no sólo arrancaban de su hogar y de su tierra a los campesinos, sino que eran los instrumentos implacables de toda la barbarie porfirista. El pueblo luchó contra las Acordadas, llegando hasta el ataque organizado.


The Agreements. Print by Jesús Escobedo.

The famous Acordadas (Agreements) were one more wound in the already bleeding Mexican countryside, to whom the people dedicated their painful heartfelt songs. Formed by rural guards, the Acordadas not only forced the peasants from their homes and lands, but they were the cruel instruments of the barbarism of the Porfirian regime. The people fought against the Acordadas, reaching an organized attack.
