On Friday June 10, to mark the 45th anniversary of the “Halconazo” —the “Falcon attack,” carried out by a paramilitary group called The Falcons— students collectives, members of the committee 68, social society, anarchist groups and syndicates were united in lamenting that human rights continue to be violated in Mexico.

The groups marched towards the center of Mexico City, to remember the events of June 10, 1971, when dozens of marching students were hurt or murdered by paramilitaries seeking to repress their growing movement. On a day of remembrance, the case of the 43 missing Ayotzinapa students was held as an example of the darkest days of Mexican history repeating itself. 

At least 4,000 police officers were present to accompany the protest, which was carried out peacefully.
