Where Are the 43? The State & Mass Murder In Mexico
Tlatelolco In 1968, Guerrero Today
George Caffentzis, Silvia Federici & Gerardo Renique | Magarito Enriquez, Juan Carlos Ruiz, Cinthya Santos & Christy Thornton

On September 26, 43 students at a rural teachers’ college in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, disappeared after a confrontation with police who opened fire on them. The students were trying to raise money to participate in protests of discriminatory hiring practices in the Mexican education system. This was not an isolated incident but the latest in a long series of repressive actions by the Mexican state against its own citizens. These panels bring together activists and scholars on both sides of the border to explore the historical roots of the current crisis, its implications both inside and outside of Mexico, and how to organize meaningful solidarity.
