Emiliano Zapata: an ofrenda

Every year, the UNAM sets up a series of ofrendas to commemorate the Day of the Dead

Every year, Mexico's leading university, UNAM, sets up a series of ofrendas to commemorate the Day of the Dead. Each year, UNAM students and volunteers build altars to commemorate and remember artists, intellectuals, revolutionaries, and activists. For example, last year, the ofrenda was created in memory of the students who were massacred by the Mexican government on October 2, 1968.
