An exposé of the criminal complicity of the Mexican police and military authorities in the armed kidnappings and disappearances of 43 students.


The night of September 26, 2014, in the city of Iguala, Guerrero, in Mexico, more the 100 young students of the Escuela Normal Rural of Ayotzinapa, were attacked by police forces, resulting in 3 students dying, more then 20 injured, and 43 kidnapped by the police. The Mexican military is also implicated in this crime.

Within a few days tens of thousands of voices, especially young voices, echoed through streets and avenues of cities of Mexico and the world, demanding the safe return of the "disappeared" students, and denouncing this act as a Crime of State - although it remains to this day unpunished.

In their testimony and the commentary of other witnesses and experts,two student survivors of the Iguala massacre reconstruct the climate of impunity, corruption, and criminality that exists, not only in the state of Guerrero but in the entire country.
