Demonstration in Support for Ayotzinapa

Last 26th of September a group of students from Ayotzinapa Normal School were attacked by police officers from the state of Guerrero in Mexico while they were raising funds to attend the commemoration of the “Tlatelolco Slaughter” in Mexico City on the 2nd of October. Six students were killed and 43 disappeared. The Government claims to ignore their whereabouts, but their families and the entire nation demand the State for their return. All across Mexico, and in many places around the world, demonstrations have been held to show solidarity with the students and their families.

From the 5th to the 7th of November, Mexican students will express their concerns and demands regarding the missing students at different universities. In this claim for justice, we are gathering at Falmer House’s entrance in the University of Sussex, thursday the 6th of November at 15:30 to show support to the students and their families and to demand the Mexican Government to deliver them alive.
