Marchers remember the dead of October 2nd 1968
Hundreds of students and other Mexicans congregated on Mexico City’s Paseo de la Reforma, Thursday at 3pm, to march in memory of the hundreds who died that night 40 years ago.
These protesters (above) carried a banner that said “Terrorists!” presumably in reference to the Mexican authorities, who have failed to punish those responsible for the deaths of hundreds of men, women, children and students. They were were fired upon indiscriminately by Government forces on the night of October 2nd 1968 whilst protesting peacefully.
Raul Alvarez Garin, a survivor of the Tlatelolco massacre and student leader back in 1968 who was later imprisoned, marched Thursday with the masses.
