Caravana 43 was formed in response to the Mexican government’s lack of transparency and accountability for the Ayotzinapa case. Relatives and peers of the 43 disappeared students have traveled to Europe demanding justice, accountability and support, and now they are traveling through the United States.

On September 26th, in Iguala Mexico the local police attacked a group of students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School and bystanders. Six people were killed, more than 20 injured, 43 students suffered enforced disappearance. Presumably they were handed in to organized crime for execution. The Mexican government has not given a meaningful response, it has been insensitive, and their inquiries have covered up military, police and politicians’ responsibility for this act of state violence. After recent recommendations by the Committee on Enforced Disappearance (CED) of United Nations and the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights, the Mexican government continues to deny its responsibility and considers it is an isolated case.
