ABSTRACT
The article discusses the tradition of resilient internal impunity in Mexico. Student movements in the 1960s and 1970s against the impunity of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) lacked power but led to the formation of the opposition Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD). PRD gave hope to Mexicans who were against impunity. Also discussed is the pamphlet by North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) titled "Mexico 1968: A Study of Domination and Repression."
