On 26 September 2014, 43 students from the rural teachers college of Ayotzinapa, in Southern Mexico were forcibly disappeared by police. To this day, their whereabouts is unknown.
According to official figures, there are more than 30,000 disappeared persons in Mexico and each day more and more persons are being disappeared by the state or with its complicity.
London Mexico Solidarity will stand in solidarity with the families and friends of the 43 as they continue to search tirelessly for the truth, for their loved ones and for justice.
The campaign say that “We will never forget and we will not stop until we know where the 43 are.” They add: “Come and join us as we stand in solidarity with the thousands of families looking for their disappeared loved ones.”
And conitnue: “Let’s tell the Mexican government loud and clear that we demand the return alive of the disappeared, that we demand justice for them and for their relatives, that we won’t be silent while people are being disappeared”.
The organisers are asking people to bring signs, bring banners, “bring love and join us as we call for an end to impunity and we demand the return of the 43, for the return of all the disappeared persons and for an end to impunity.”
