ROMERO VALDERRAMA, Ana. Pedraza Tyranny and right of insurrection: the journalistic justification to the Yorkino rebellion of the Acordada in Mexico (1828). Estud. hist. mod. contemp. Mex [online]. 2018, n.55, pp.77-119. ISSN 0185-2620.

The “right of insurrection” represented a substantial theme for the nation-building history in Mexico, especially in terms of legitimacy of the independence and the nascent authorities. Politicians decided not to mention it in the 1824 constitution, since they already tacitly accepted its existence as a natural right. Nevertheless, after the 1828 Acordada rebellion, most politicians reconsidered their position. The insurrectionist doctrine claimed during the rebellion has not been addressed by historiography. Therefore, this article aims to fill in the missing political analysis. In the first place, it demonstrates that the yorkinos (Lodges of York) periodicals not only had previously sought to justify the revolt, but that they had actually set out to promote it. In the second place, it examines the arguments used to legitimize the revolt arguing a pedracista oppression. Finally, it explains some consequences of the uprising for the nineteenth-century political culture.
