A Sculptural Outcry

This sculpture has been erected to denounce the encroachments of the Mexican State on the indigenous population. May the victims be remembered and honoured forever; and may the perpetrators be brought to justice and tried for their crimes against humanity.

Jens Galschiot, 1999
