More about this marker. As one of the first leaders of Mexican independence, Mexico is fond of donating statues of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla to other countries. Interestingly, someone has vandalized this marker by writing "murderer" ("asesino") next to the name of the Mexican President Diaz Ordaz. He was president of Mexico during a period of state repression against protesting students, culminating in the Tlatelolco massacre.
