Remembering those oppressed

The UNAM and its students set up several altars in Mexico City's historic center

All the altars pay homage to those who have died in the name of freedom, all those massacred by the Mexican government on October 2, 1968, and the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa

This and other stories are told by the altars set up at the Plaza de Santo Domingo, in Mexico City's Historic Center. You can visit the exhibition until November 4.
