Description
Historical text from the accompanying booklet reads as: El dipsómano Victoriano Huerta llega al Palacio Nacional y se hace nombrar Presidente de la República. Colaboran con él José María Lozano, Querido Moheno, Nemesio García Naranjo, Olaguíbel y otros intelectuales reaccionarios. Por fortuna, la usurpación es derrotada en algunos meses, debido a que el pueblo mexicano se levanta en armas para encarrilar nuevamente al país por senderos constitucionales. Alberto Morales Jimenez. Translation: The drunkard Victoriano Huerta arrives at the National Palace and appoints himself President of the Republic. The radical federalists José María Lozano, Querido Moheno, Nemesio García Naranjo, Olaguíbel (Francisco M. Olaguíbel), and other reactionary intellectuals cooperated with him. Fortunately, the takeover is defeated in a few months because the Mexican people took up arms to put the country back on its constitutional path. Translated by Aída Wester, Intern 2017.
