Live music, a screening of the documentary film â€œAyotzinapa: Chronicle of a State Crime,â€ public lectures, and a procession will mark one year since the forced disappearance of 43 Ayotzinapa Teacher’s College students perpetrated by Mexican police and cartel members. The events coincide with a massive, pan-American day of action in which people across Mexico and throughout the hemisphere will demand that the students be returned alive.
On September 26, 2014 students from the Ayotzinapa Teacher’s College (RaÃºl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachersâ€™ College) were raising money to attend a protest in Mexico City when police and gunmen attacked them in the town of Iguala, Mexico. Three were killed, dozens were injured, and 43 student-teachers were forcefully disappeared, never to be seen again.
