[The Medical Movement in Mexico 1964-1965: What's happening half a century later?]

César Gutiérrez-Samperio
Gaceta Médica de México 2016, 152 (1): 124-34
We reviewed the literature covering the medical movement in 1964-1965, which began on November 26, 1964 with the ISSSTE November 20 Hospital scholarship protest and the emergence of the Mexican Resident Interns Physicians Association (Asociación Mexicana de Médicos Residentes e Internos, AMMRI) and the Mexican Medical Alliance (Alianza de Médicos Mexicanos, AMM). We describe four work stoppages, two protest marches, the takeover of hospitals by the police, four interviews with Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz and his first presidential report. After that, attacks in the press, harassment, and repression provoked the weakening of the movement that ended in the AMM assembly on January 18, 1966.
