On September 26th 2014 students from the teacher-training college of Ayotzinapa, in Guerrero, Mexico, were attacked by police forces whilst being monitored by intelligence agencies of the Mexican army and the federal police. Three students and three bystanders were killed, 40 students were injured and 43 disappeared by the police.

In early September 2015, almost one year later, an international group of independent experts of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights rejected the investigation of the Mexican government into the attack and disappearance of the students, confirming that the 43 students are still disappeared and that the official investigation has to be refocused to include the participation of State agents in the attack and their active role preventing the search for the truth, as a central element.

One year after we still demand the return of the 43 students alive, truth and justice, as well as punishment for those responsible for the attack and for the failures in the investigation. Come along to our activities and help us spread the voice of the 43, their relatives and the victims of disappearance in Mexico, which on the last count are around 30 000 people in the last ten years in the context of the so-called “war on drugs”.

This September 26 2015, one year after the attack, around 150 people gathered to claim for justice outside the Mexican embassy to the UK. Representatives from different campaigns and people in solidarity expressed their concerns regarding Mexico’s human rights crisis and the role the of international community.
