Over the Columbus Day weekend, I was in Mexico City attending and speaking at a conference marking the founding of the Mexican chapter of the Internet Society. That in itself was a potentially historic event. But that Saturday was also Dia de la Raza--"Day of the People"--celebrated in Washington by the largest Latino demonstration in U.S. history and in Mexico City by the first capital city demonstration of the famous Zapatista peasants from the mountains of southern Chiapas province.

February 4, 1998 | MARY BETH SHERIDAN and ROBERT RANDOLPH, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
For the first time in modern Mexican history, a former president testified Tuesday before a congressional committee, as legislators plunged into an investigation of one of this country's most painful events: the army massacre of student protesters in 1968. Former President Luis Echeverria, 76, was asked to clarify the mystery still surrounding the military attack--an assault so bloody it started the gradual decline of Mexico's one-party state.

The story was not supposed to end this way. The script written by econometric forecasts and approved on Wall Street called for President Carlos Salinas de Gortari and his team of U.S.-educated technicians to fade from the screen in 1994 as pin-striped revolutionaries. Salinas would bow out as the great modernizer who stabilized the economy and led Mexico toward the 21st Century as a First World country.
