The Plan of Ayutla was the written plan aimed at removing conservative, centralist president 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.[1]

Juan Álvarez, strongman of Guerrero, was named by the Plan of Ayutla as one of three leaders of liberation forces.

Forces under Juan Álvarez, strong man of Guerrero state, rebelled against Santa Anna's government, initiating 19 months of guerrilla warfare and civil unrest against Santa Anna. This uprising is termed the Revolution of Ayutla, since it entailed not just a narrow goal, but a more thoroughgoing change in political direction via armed warfare. With Alvarez's success in mobilizing forces in Guerrero, many of which had formed paramilitary units during the U.S. - Mexican War (1846-1848), there were uprisings in the states of Michoacán, Morelos, Oaxaca, Mexico state and then spread to the northern states of Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, and Nuevo León. When Mexico City denounced Santa Anna, he fled into exile and Alvarez's forces marched into the capital with a "brigade of rustics called Pintos (ferocious warriors so called because in earlier times, they wore face paint).[2]

The Plan paved the way for the La Reforma, the Liberal Reform that conservatives opposed in open, civil war, known as the Reform War or the Three Years War. The Revolution of Ayutla brought liberals to power. Their leaders initially passed a series of reform laws that were then incorporated into the 1857 Constitution. Supporters of the Plan of Ayutla included Juan Álvarez, Benito Juárez, the Lerdo de Tejada brothers, José María Jesús Carbajal and Ignacio Comonfort.
