Ayotzinapa, who are the missing 43?
Ayotzinapa is a small town in the state of Guerrero, Mexico where 43 “normalistas” indigenous male students went missing on September 26 2014. According to official reports, they were on their way to protest a conference organized by the mayor’s wife and were stopped by police. It is widely believed that elected officials, police and a drug cartel worked in collaboration to orchestrate their disappearance. Their case is representative of the level of impunity and corruption that plague the Country. The case has gained momentum and international support due to the unyielding activism of the parents and wide grassroots solidarity efforts are being organized to offset the cost of travel for a caravan tour in the US and we need you to help us bring them to New York.
