{my subtitle}


As a teacher myself, I'd love to give my opinions and my heartache over this horrendous tragedy but it's much better for you, if you get the facts and hear what is being written and shared. Hopefully, you will leave better informed and appalled by what is happening, perhaps motivated to ACT. The details are overwhelming and justice must come for these 43 college students and their families crying out for them. These students have names, families and human rights.
"The murder of six people, including three students, and the disappearance of 43 other students from the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training School in the state of Guerrero exposes how Mexico can not shake its history of state violence and impunity."... "The 43 missing students are part of the 240 people who have gone missing in just in the state of Guerrero this year, while there have been over 9,000 people who have disappeared since President Enrique Peña Nieto took office in 2012." ... TeleSur TV{excellent, informative article on the multiple disappearances in Mexico overall}
I could not agree more with this statement made at the end of the above article 
"...Until these issues are addressed, and justice and accountability become the norm and not the exception,  groups such as students, women, human rights defenders, migrants, and journalists will remain vulnerable."

Disappearance of 43 Students

"Mexico has a very deep wound right now after the disappearance of the 43 students in Ayotzinapa. 

On September 26, dozens of students took several buses to Iguala, and after a violent encounter with the police, 43 of them were allegedly taken to the police headquarters and never heard from them again. The government claimed the students where there to boycott a political event, but the students claim they were there to raise funds for their school. Mexican authorities eventually declared the students dead after weeks of investigation, but the people of Mexico are not letting this one go so easily.

They’ve had enough with the government, and this atrocious act was the last straw, which detonated a series of protests around the whole country. 

On November 20, 2014, multiple manifestations  both in Mexico and of Mexicans living in other countries took place to show their support to the Ayotzinapa students and to tell the government that they’re tired of the corruption. The protest in Mexico City specifically took place at El Zócalo,  ..."

I have set these up now for every month, hopefully so I won't miss them ... and I remain AWARE of each one that concerns me personally and should for the rest. If I become aware of more I will try to add them here (the 1st of every month) and throughout the month as I learn of any more.
