CHRONICLE OF A STATE CRIME...
"It is the story of the forced disappearence of the 43 Normalista students, testimonial and documented, that uncovers the criminal involvement between the police and military authorities, as well as between the political and economic elite of Mexico that would seem to be different forces, but that respond to the same interests."
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, that had left the school to make a public collection to fund their trip to Mexico City, were attacked by police forces, resulting in 3 students dying, more then 20 injuries, and 43 kidnapped by the police, with the involvement of the Mexican military.
In between the voices of those interviewed, 2 student survivors of the massacre of Iguala reconstructed the climate of impunity, corruption, and criminality that exists, not only in the state of Guerrero but in the entire country. Through an interweaving story, those interviewed tell the story of the actual decomposition of Mexico, beginning with the crime in Iguala, denouncing that this is not an isolated action, but an event with preceding criminal stories that are part of the political narco-state of Mexico.
“THEY WANT US TO BE QUIET, BUT AYOTZINAPA NEVER STAYS SILENT”
says one of the young survivors
Within a few days of the state having perpetrated the crime, tens of thousands of voices, especially young voices, echoed through streets and avenues of cities of Mexico and the world, demanding the appearance of 43 student with life, who were victims of the enforced disappearance, and denouncing this act as a crime of State, which to this day still has gone unpunished.
