Search for missing Mexican
students continues

Demonstrations in Mexico continue to call for action to locate the 43 students who disappeared more than a month ago in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero.

Government authorities reported that no link has been found between the students and organized crime, and that an information center for families of the missing has been established, to keep them abreast of the investigation underway, according to Telesur.

Tomás Zerón de Lucio, head of the General Attorney’s Criminal Investigation Agency, reported that 130 locations have been searched, including hotels, caves and abandoned mines, as well as 40 bodies of water.

Zerón also stated that Rogelio Ortega, Guerrero interim governor, has said that the students are alive and he is willing to negotiate with criminal groups holding them, though this information has not been passed on to federal authorities.

The disappearance took place September 26, after a student march ended in confrontation with security forces. The “normalistas,” students attending Normal Schools, were protesting the local government’s college admission policies.

Marches and demonstrations led by youth and teachers from all levels of education have taken place continuously over the last month, demanding a more energetic response on the part of authorities.

Today, October 31, protests are underway emphasizing the demand, “Vivos se los llevaron, Vivos los queremos.” (You took them alive, we want them back alive.)
