While reading the trending topics in Mexico on Twitter, I noticed one Called “no se olvida” and “2deOctubreNoSeOlvida“. Upon reading some tweets, I recalled the monument I saw in Mexico City in the Plaza de Tres Culturas. Known as the “Tlatelolco massacre” the government opened fire on students and civilians who were protesting the 1968 Summer Olympics that were set to begin in Mexico. The monument lists the names and ages of those who were known to have been killed, although many more are unlisted as it is unknown exactly how many were killed. It is believed hundreds were killed during this protest. This was Mexico’s Kent State, soldiers unprovoked firing on civilians during a protest. For this, we must Never Forget. For more information, you can read about the event here and here.
