introduced by Myriam Hernandez & Roberto Ramirez of the Building Bridges – Human Rights Vancouver team.

On September 26th, 2014 in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico, 43 young students from Ayotzinapa Normal School “Raúl Isidro Burgos” were arrested by Iguala’s police force, and masked men. Shots were fired, 6 were killed immediately, twenty injured, and then the 43 students were handed over to the brutal narco-trafficking gang, Guerreros Unidos, and they have not been seen since. This movie, by VICE News, examines what happened next:

The goal of this event is to contribute to the fundraising campaign of Solidaridad Con Ayotzinapa Vancouver. They are trying to gather $10,000 to send to the parents and families of the 43 student-teachers for the creation of community radio broadcasting in Ayotzinapa and San Luis Acatlan. These radios will help in finding the missing students and denounce the campaign of defamation of the Mexican government against the relatives of the victims and each of the violations of human rights committed in these communities.
