After holding a meeting with Stravos Lambardini, representative for human rights from the European Union, the father of a normalist student, an Ayotzinapa student, and a member of the Tlachinollan Mountain Centre for Human Rights departed on 15 April to Europe.  Between that time and 19 May, the brigade plans to visit 18 cities in 13 countries to inform the European community about the continuing struggles of the parents for the presentation with life of the 43 disappeared students.  Meetings will be held with student communities, collectives, social organizations, and unionists, while there will also be held marches and rallies in front of Mexican embassies and consulates.  Talks will also be given at universities.

In a communique, Tlachinollan explains that “included within the objectives of the European brigade is support for the demands of the parents that investigative liens be opened regarding the responsibility of the Mexican Army and the federal police in the forcible disappearance of the 43 students from the Rural Normal School of Ayotzinapa, as well as to stress the international responsibility of the European governments for the grave human-rights violations committed against the students, for they have signed bilateral security and trade agreements with Mexico.  This has meant the sale of arms and training of the Mexican police and military, despite the fact that human rights are so violated in Mexico.”

“We seek real guarantees of non-repetition.  These we must construct among ourselves, with the peoples and communities, together with social organizations and collectives.  We cannot ask for these guarantees from the very same governmental institutions that contribute to human-rights violations,” says Omar García, a member of the Ayotzinapa Student Committee and a survivor of the 26 September attack.  He indicated as well that the tour seeks to bring the movement to the global sphere: “on this occasion, our counterparts in Europe are social and human-rights organizations, collectives, autonomous media (or however they are called), and organized civil society.  We come to express our gratitude for all the support, and to insist that it is necessary for us from below to continue to organize ourselves toward the transformation of this entire system of power and corruption that is based on looting, racism, exploitation, and repression against our peoples.  We must do this together, from our countries of origin, coordinated and organized.  This way, while the powerful have globalized plundering, we have the sacred right of globalizing resistance, dignified rage, and joyful rebelliousness.”

Route of EuroCaravana43

A committee from the Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School is touring Europe between April 16 and May 19 to inform the European community about the continuation of the struggle of the fathers and mothers for the live presentation of the 43 missing students, despite the Mexican government insisting that student teachers were incinerated, without evidence to prove it, said the Tlachinollan Human Rights Center .

The brigade, consisting of a parent, a student and a human rights defender, will travel to thirteen countries in Europe for meetings with student communities, groups, social organizations and union members.

“With marches, rallies in front of Mexican Embassies and Consulates, lectures at universities and meetings with organized communities, the Ayotzinapa Brigade will share the meaning of seven months of struggle and organization against the forced disappearance of 43 students that occurred in Iguala, Guerrero, on September 26, 2014,” a statement of human rights centre announced.

“Among the objectives of the brigade to Europe is supporting the demands of parents and mothers for opening lines of investigation into the responsibility of the Mexican Army and the Federal Police in the forced disappearance of 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School,” it explained.
