Tue Oct 14 2008Tijuana March In Commemoration of Student Massacre
Tue Oct 14 2008Tlatelolco 1968 Remembered
Several hundred protesters, mostly students, took to the streets of Tijuana, Mexico October 4 in remembrance of the 1968 massacre of leftist students in Tlatelolco Plaza. At that time hundreds, perhaps thousands of students were killed when troops opened fire on a demonstration protesting the Mexico City Olympics.
The Mexican government meant to put an end to the student movement, whose leadership was wiped out. Luis Echeverría, who was Minister of the Interior in 1968, gave the order for the massacre. He was later made President of Mexico under the rule of the PRI Party. Echeverría was charged with genocide in 2006, but the charge was dropped because of the statute of limitations. Documents have become declassified showing that the CIA was involved in the preparations for the massacre. In Tijuana, the demonstrators chanted “ni perdon, ni olvido” (no forgiveness, no forgetting).
Rally organizers and other student speakers told the crowd that gathered in front of a Calimax market that they must unite to oppose the selling off of the state-owned Pemex oil conglomerate to greedy world corporate interests, as well as create a student movement that would increase the quality and availability of 21st Century educational opportunities for all, including the poor.
