In Memoriam of Tlatelolco by MarioStrikerMurphy In Memoriam of Tlatelolco by MarioStrikerMurphy
45 Years ago, in 1968, a group of High School and University students and teachers of the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and the IPN (National Polytechnic Institute) made a protest against the autoritharian regime of the Mexican dictator Gustavo Díaz Ordáz, in order to have better things for the society and the economy of the nation. However, this son of a bitch of Díaz Ordáz sent the militar and policial forces, alongside the forces of the "Olimpia Batallion" (a secret government branch made for the security of the Olympic Games composed of soldiers, police officers, and federal security agents, disguised as civilians) and, in order to stop the protest, murdered several students and teachers. Now, 45 years later, this horror still stays in the memory of the Mexican people, especially because the truth about the identies and number of deceased wasn't reveled, nor the guilties of this fuckin' crime against humanity...

And, now, for remember this horror in this October 2nd, I'm showing you this drawing. The Tlatelolco section of Mexico City, the place where the horror happened...There are the "Square of the Three Cultures" (this name is in recognition of the three periods of Mexican history reflected by those buildings pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial, and the independent "mestizo" nation. The plaza, designed by Mexican architect and urbanist Mario Pani, was completed in 1966), the Chihuahua Building, the Torre Insignia, the Tlatelolco Tower (former headquarters of the SRE (Secretariat of Foreign Affairs), and actual headquarters of the UNAM Cultural center), and the Metro Tlatelolco (along Line 3 of the Mexico City Metro). The shadows in the left part of the drawings are a representation of the deceased people in this fuckin' horrible day. Ah, if you're questioning about the girl in the drawing, she is Noriko Nakagawa (from Battle Royale), crying by the fuckin' horror of this place (and worst than the Millenium Educational Reform BR Act)...

With that asshole son of a bitch of Enrique Peña Nieto in power, I have the fear that this horrible event to repeat on someday...But we have no choice, that move on, and to face tomorrow with hope, optimism and faith...

An only thing is true, my friends...October 2nd is not forgotten...and even less forgiven...

This drawing is dedicated to the memory of all those who disappeared during the 1968 Student Movement
