Mexico’s National Archive Discloses Documents on 1968 Movement, Over 100,000 Items Available Online
The General Archive of the Nation (AGN), the National Transparency Institute (INAI) and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) declassified its documents on the 1968 student movement, as society and institutions are honoring its successes and martyrs after 50 years.
The AGN released its documents as part of an effort to shed light on the movement, violently repressed by the government of Gustavo Diaz Ordaz and Luis Echeverria.
The documents were added to the “M68 Collection: Citizenship in Movement” at the Tlatelolco University Cultural Center (CCUT), which now has over 100 thousand digital items of Mexico’s social movements since 1968. The collection project has been promoted by the UNAM and several educational institutions of the country have taken part in it.
