Description
Historical text from the accompanying booklet reads as: El 11 de septiembre de 1910 se efectuó en esta capital una manifestación de hombres libres. Se dirigían a depositar una corona en la Columna de la Independencia cuando fueron villanamente atropellados por las fuerzas federales. Los extranjeros que visitaron nuestro país con motivo de las ceremonias del Centenario presenciaron cómo se balaceaba al pueblo. Esto les demostró que la democracia porfirista era una farsa completa. Alberto Morales Jimenez. Translation: On the 11th of September 1910, a protest of free people took place in the capital city. They were going to lay a wreath at the Column of Independence when they were brutally trampled over by mounted federal forces. Foreigners visiting our country for the Centennial celebration witnessed how the people were being treated and shot at. It revealed that the Porfiriato democracy was a complete farce.
