Almost seven years after the forced disappearance of 43 students of the Rural Teachers’ College in the town of Ayotzinapa, Mexico, the struggle for truth and justice continues as the investigation proceeds slowly
According to a quick count by Mexico’s National Electoral Institute (INE), an overwhelming majority of voters voted in favor of investigating former presidents. However, the turnout to make the results of the referendum binding was insufficient
The marches were held on Wednesday as a part of the 80th global action for Ayotzinapa and Mexico.
September 26 marked 6 years since the disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa, Mexico.
While the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador promised to take action on the case, little progress has been made to overcome the years of evidence tampering and cover-ups done to protect those involved
We also report on the women’ march in Palestine against gender based violence.
Out of the total 142 arrested in the Ayotzinapa Case, 77 have been released and 65 remain in prison.
Families and relatives of the disappeared students marched on the anniversary from the Angel of Independence to the Zócalo square to demand justice
The relatives of the students and their friends had appealed to Lopez Obrador to take up the matter again in order to reveal the role of politicians and security forces in the abduction and disappearance of the students.
