“¡Matalos en caliente!” Veracruz, 25 de Junio de 1879. Grabado de Alfredo Zalce.

“Aprehendidos infraganti, mátalos en caliente”, decía el telegrama que Porfirio Díaz envió al general Luis Mier y Terán, Comandante Militar de Veracruz, para indicarle que, sin juicio, fusilara a varias personas cuyo único delito consistía en anhelar un régimen democrático. El 25 de junio de 1879 fueron llevados al paredón los jefes de este frustrado movimiento revolucionario, precursor de los acontecimientos de 1910.


"Kill them in the heat of battle!" Veracruz, June 25, 1879. Print by Alfredo Zalce.

"Apprehended criminals, kill them in the heat of battle," said the telegram that Porfirio Díaz sent to General Luis Mier y Terán, Military Commander of Veracruz, to indicate that, without trial, he should execute several people whose only crime was to long for a democratic regime. On June 25, 1879, the leaders of this frustrated revolutionary movement were brought to the wall, a precursor to the events of 1910.
