Mexico remembers Tlatelolco, 1968

On Oct. 2 Mexicans observed the 40th anniversary of the 1968 Tlatelolco massacre with a march of tens of thousands of people through Mexico City and other events. Veterans of 1968 marched alongside students who were not even born then, joining with farmers and striking teachers. In Mexico City, the local government put flags at half mast.
