Periodico Revolutionario - Early August 1910

CHAOS IN COAHUILA
A coalition of Porfiriatas, Renovadoras and Antirreleccionistas have attacked General “Pancho” Villa in Coahuila, leading to the downfall of that territory. It is unclear at this time who controls Coahuila. Forces belonging to President Diaz initially said they were in control of the territory, but that remained unclear once the fighting died down.

VILLA DEFENDS IN CHIHUAHUA
General “Pancho” Villa has successfully defended an attack by General Gutierrez. Two infantry units squared off against each other, with only light casualties reported.

ZAPATA ATTACKS MADERO IN JALISCO
General Emiliano Zapata has attacked General Madero in the territory of Jalisco. Madero’s Fort was able to successfully push back the light Zapatista invaders. Both sides suffered light damaged.

TAX RATES REMAIN HIGH
Speaking from the floor three months ago, newly elected Presidente Porfirio Diaz made a promise to raise taxes to 80% for “at least 10 weeks” designated for “rehabilitation of infrastructure and the support of the Federalis so that peace may be maintained.” It has now been over 3 months and the tax rate remains 80%, leaving some citizens to question when it will end.

CARRANZA TAKES CONTROL IN COAHUILA
Local reporters for the Peridico Revolutionario hav confirmed that General Venustiano Carranza has taken control of the territory of Coahuila. There was a state of confusion directly after forces lead by Carranza, Gutierrez and President Diaz took the territory from General "Pancho" Villa. President Diaz later confirmed who controlled the territory in a statement to the press. "Counter to the false reporting in Periódico Revolucionario, I make no claim to the territory of Coahuila," he said.
