Songs against the Mexican Government

Created by phantasmagoria on 07 Jul 2018

Songs about events where the Mexican government was involved where there have been mass killings and kidnappings throughout the decades or that talk about the corruption and injustice in the country. I've also included songs that are critical of the country and are clearly taking a jab at it.

The song is about the 43 students that went "missing" on September 26, 2014 in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico (known as the 2014 Iguala mass kidnapping).

Translations:  English

The Tlatelolco massacre was the killing of students and civilians by military and police on October 2, 1968, in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in the Tlatelolco section of Mexico City. The events are considered part of the Mexican Dirty War, when the government used its forces to suppress political opposition. The massacre occurred roughly 10 days before the opening of the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. More than 1,300 people were arrested by security police. There has been no consensus on how many were killed that day in the plaza area. This incident has had a lasting effect on Mexican society.

A song condemning the government and all those in power that are suspected of being involved or who did nothing in the aftermath of the events that unfolded on September 26, 2014 in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico (known as the 2014 Iguala mass kidnapping).

The song is through the eyes of one of the missing students from the moment he tells his mother goodbye because he's going to school and the last moment he's alive. The events describe the 2014 Iguala mass kidnapping.

Translations:  English

So that the events of the Tlatelolco massacre to never be forgotten, the song described what occurred on that day.
