Massacre en Tlatelolco, 2 October 1968


Shows footage of the infamous massacre of scores, probably hundreds of students in Mexico City, who were protesting at extravagant government spending on the Olympics and other matters. The events have never been fully investigated and genocide charges against the PRI president of the time, Luis Echeverría, were eventually dismissed.

Video: directed by Alan Tomlinson. Published on YouTube May 2012.
