Publisher Description:
In Mexico City on the night of October 2, 1968, at least two hundred students--among thousands protesting election fraud and campaigning for university reform--were shot dead in a bloody showdown with government troops in Tlatelolco Square. The bodies were collected and trucked away and the cobblestones washed clean. Hundreds more were arrested, and imprisoned for years. To this day, no one has been held accountable for the acts of savagery and these events are nowhere to be found in official histories. One member of the crowd that night, Paco Taibo, would become an international literary figure. '68 is his account of the events of October 2, and of the student movement that preceded them. In provocative, anecdotal prose, Taibo claims for history "one more of the many unredeemed and sleepless ghosts that live in our lands."
