« Thousands of people marched through the streets of Mexico City on Tuesday to mark the ninth anniversary of the disappearance of 43 college students from Ayotzinapa who went missing in Iguala in 2014.
Footage shows protesters walking with flags, banners, and signs, including ‘Ayotzinapa: nine years of pain, lies, death, and repression’ and ‘Unbundled in truth, we are missing 43′, as well as written messages on buildings’ walls.
« We came to fight for the 43. But we are not only fighting for them; we are also fighting for the thousands of people who disappeared throughout the country. We have been ignored; we have seen all the reports; we are students, and we are fully informed. We are not guerrillas; we are not criminals, as we are accused; we are people who demand justice, » said Luis Hernandez, a student who was part of the demonstration.
The students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College disappeared in Iguala on September 28, 2014, after being allegedly taken into custody by local police officers involved in organised crime, reported the administration of former president Enrique Pena Nieto.
An official investigation concluded that police used deadly force against the students. Twenty-two police officers were arrested for their involvement in the incident.
A truth commission set up by President Andres Obrador dubbed it a ‘crime of the state’, implicating gangs, soldiers, and officials within the Mexican government. So far, there have been no convictions. »
