Mexico City (Zee Zee News) – Mexico prepared on Thursday for a national day of protest and marches for 43 missing students culminating in the arrival of the three bus convoys that have been travelling across the country demanding justice for the parents of the disappeared youths.
On the day that commemorates the Mexican Revolution of 1910, dozens of protests have been organised in cities across the country to protest the incidents of September 26 when police in the southern town of Iguala detained the students at the order of the town mayor and handed them over to a criminal gang.
Members of the gang told police that the students were killed and their bodies burned. What few remains have been found are being analysed by a laboratory in Austria.
But this official version failed to convince family members, who say they will continue fighting for the return of the students until their deaths are proven.
