Event. Solidarity with Students in Mexico – We Want Justice!

Demonstration in Ottawa demands justice for forty-three students, November 11, 2014. (HCPDF)

Join actions to oppose state violence and demand justice from the Mexican authorities in the disappearance and alleged killing of 43 Mexican students. The students went missing on September 26, 2014 when police agents from Iguala, Guerrero, in collusion with local gang members shot at several buses being used by the students and then kidnapped them. Six people, including three students and one 15-year-old boy were killed that night.Since that time students, teachers and the Mexican people have been demanding justice for the students, who attended a training school for rural teachers in Ayotzinapa in Guerrero state. In marches and actions in Mexico the demand is growing for the resignation of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
