FROM THIS EPISODE

poster.jpgThis week, a spotlight on the award winning independent radio producing organization Radio Diaries. We revisit a stunning documentary from producers Joe Richman and Anayansi Diaz-Cortes.

In the summer of 1968, students in Mexico began to challenge the country's authoritarian government. But the movement was short-lived, lasting less than three months. It ended on October 2, 1968, ten days before the opening of the Olympics in Mexico City, when military troops opened fire on a peaceful student demonstration. The shooting lasted over two hours. The next day the government sent in cleaners to wash the blood from the plaza floor.
