El Mexico de Hoy - The Mexico of Today on Flickr.
In the Plaza de las Tres Culturas (the Plaza of the Three Cultures), which includes pre-Hispanic ruins, a colonial-era church, and architecture of modern Mexico. This area was also the site of a defeat of Cuauhtemoc at the hands of Hernan Cortes, as well as the October 1968 massacre of student protesters that took place just before the Olympics (www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97546687).
The plaque marks the battle between Cortes and Cuauhtemoc, then says “It was neither a triumph nor a defeat, but the painful birth of the mestizo people that is the Mexico of today.”

02JAN2014: Remembering Tlatelolco on Flickr.
Images of student protesters arrested on the night of the October 1968 massacre of Tlatelolco in Mexico City. It remains unknown how many people died or were injured during that day’s military crackdown, which took place weeks before the city hosted the Olympics and in the same plaza where Cortes handed Cuauhtemoc a defeat in 1521.
