Mexican Student Activist re: 43 missing young men

“Even within the context of the violence that has left over 120,000 dead and tens of thousands disappeared since 2006, the forced disappearance of the Ayotzinapa students represents a watershed moment, not merely for the manner in which 43 young men were abducted by security forces, but for the widely-held suspicion of governmental involvement. Mexican authorities have been accused of a campaign of disinformation and of attempting to discredit those who challenge the establishment narrative. Endemic chaos and corruption at all levels has given Mexico the unofficial title of the “narco-state.”
