A Commemoration of Student's Fight for Rights
In collaboration with Cal Poly Modern Languages & Literatures Department in the College of Liberal Arts, please join CLFSA in support of the memorial community display at Dexter Lawn on campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, December 2nd.
It honors the lives and passions of 43 Mexican student victims captured and rumored to have been killed by organized criminal gangs and corrupt government officials in the City of Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico.
The Normal University students were traveling to commemorate the anniversary of the 1968 student massacre in Tlatelolco, Mexico City, when they were captured.
We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you there!
