Epilogo De La Huelga De Rio Blanco. 8 De Enero De 1907. Grabado de Fernando Castro Pacheco.

Por órdenes de Porfirio Díaz y de los empresarios, en varios furgones de ferrocarril fueron conducidos a la costa los cadáveres de los obreros muertos por los federales, para ser arrojados al mar. Es cosa sabida por todos que un tal Garcín y los dueños de las fábricas de Río Blanco, Veracruz, brindaron con copas de champaña por la feliz terminación de la huelga hilandera. También se hicieron brindis por la salud de Díaz.


Epilogue of The Rio Blanco Strike. January 8, 1907. Print by Fernando Castro Pacheco.

By orders of Porfirio Díaz and the businessmen, the corpses of the workers killed by the federals were taken to the coast in several railroad cars so they could be thrown into the sea. It is well known that a certain man named Garcín and the owners of the factories of Rio Blanco, Veracruz, were toasting with glasses of champagne to the happy ending of the spinners’ strike. Also, toasts were made for the health of Díaz.
