Ricardo Flores Magon was born in San Antonio Eloxochitlán, Oaxaca, Mexico, in 1873. He was a politician and Mexican journalist who is considered a precursor of the Mexican Revolution that rose up against Porfirio Diaz. His thought and struggle inspired many of the workers' gains and some rights that were incorporated in writing in the Mexican constitution. Flores Magon began studying law at the University of Mexico, and in 1892 he was arrested at a student protest against Porfirio Diaz. In 1900, together with his brother Enrique, he founded the newspaper Regeneration permanently to the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz criticism. In 1904 he was exiled to the United States and two years later founded in Missouri the Mexican Liberal Party, curtain from which spread anarchist ideals of the Revolution (but never naming anarchist newspapers in circulation). In 1918 he wrote a manifesto in which he addressed all anarchists in the world, urging them to rise up against oppression. He was sentenced by US authorities to twenty years in prison. He died in 1922, almost blind, in the prison of Leavenworth, Kansas.
