Enforced Disappearance of Students in Mexico
On September 26 2014, 6 people, among them 3 students from the rural teaching-training school (Escuela Normal Rural) of Ayotzinapa, in the Mexican state of Guerrero, were killed by police. In this event, 43 students from the same school were allegedly kidnapped, also by members of the police force. This enforced disappearance has caused a national and international outrage, and people in over 100 cities around the world have condemned the events and demanded the return of the disappeared. This panel will address the history of the Escuelas Normales Rurales, the different struggles of the normalista students, and the context in which the repression took place.
