September 26th was the second anniversary of the forcible disappearance of 43 students at Ayotzinapa Teacher’s College in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. The students, all young men, were political activists.
The parents & family’s have evidence they were kidnapped by the Mexican army. The Mexican government has closed the case to avoid further scrutiny of these monstrous crimes. After two years, it’s unlikely most have survived the torture.
The grief of families for their beloved who were forcibly disappeared is never resolved & it is never politically forgotten. They are always expressed in photo montages–going back to those disappeared under fascist General Franco in Spain over 80-years ago.
This is a commemoration & tribute to the Ayotzinapa 43 in McAllen, Texas. It is not an event to lay to rest the demand the justice but is part of the international struggle against forcible disappearance.
