Remember the fallen

In October 2nd, 1968, president Diaz Ordaz ordered the soldiers to stop a revolt made by students in Tlatelolco. Facing the mexican army, the students and teachers were standing up for their rights and stood up by their beliefs. This made the president very angry, he did not want to show the world he was making bad decisions along with the current government. So he authorized the soldiers to shoot the students and teachers. Even armed tanks were delivered to Tlatelolco. Many were brutally assassinated by the militia.
We will never forget this horrible incident.
