Una manifestación antireeleccionista es disuelta. Grabado de Alfredo Zalce.

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 balanceaba al pueblo. Esto les demonstró que la democracia porfirista era una farsa completa.


An anti-election demonstration is dissolved. Print by Alfredo Zalce.

On September 11, 1910, a demonstration of free men was carried out in this capital. They were heading to place a crown on the Column of Independence when they were evilly run over by federal forces. The foreigners who visited our country for the centennial ceremonies witnessed how the people vacillated. This showed them that the Porfirista democracy was a complete farce.
