Ayotzinapa

The IGIE and the Struggle for the Truth

Eight years have passed since the disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa. There has been neither truth nor justice for the parents of the 43 in that time. In the following article, La Montaña Tlachinollan Human Rights Center gives its analysis of the latest report from the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (IGIE) and the current status of the investigation.

Nothing is the Same Anymore

Following the report last month from the Commission for Access to Truth and Justice in the Ayotzinapa case, the arrest of former Attorney General Murillo Karam, and the arrest warrants issued for dozens of military personnel, the parents of the 43 disappeared students are witnessing backtracking from positions of power, in particular the protection of the military. The victims’ families demand to know why.

Ayotzinapa, the Time Tunnel

Luis Hernandez Navarro raises some red flags, about the ease with which the military continues to evade the Ayotzinapa case, despite the fact that it “not only did nothing to prevent it and falsified what happened, but also murdered and disappeared some of the 43 youths.”

Ayotzinapa, at the Edge of the Abyss

Tomorrow, September 26th, 2022 marks the 8-year anniversary of the barbaric mass-disappeance and murder of 43 normalistas (student teachers) who were traveling to Mexico City from their school in Iguala, Guerrero. Though the crime was dismissed by the previous administration as a tragic incident perpetrated by the drug gang, Guerreros Unidos, just over a month ago, the Commission for Truth and Access to Justice published a report indicating that the whole event was a “crime of the state.”
