Plan of Ayutla

The Plan of Ayutla was a plan aimed at removing Antonio López de Santa Anna as dictator of Mexico. Initially drafted on February 24, 1854, by Colonel Florencio Villarreal, it was proclaimed on March 1, 1854, in Ayutla, Guerrero. The Plan not only aimed at removing the dictator but also convening a constituent assembly in order to draft a federal constitution.

The Plan paved the way for the War of Reform (1856-1861), which would set up a liberal government under the 1857 Constitution. Supporters of the Plan included Benito Juárez, Juan Álvarez, the Lerdo de Tejada brothers, José María Jesús Carbajal and Ignacio Comonfort.
