BORDER NEWS: Mexican Government says 43 students are still missing.


GRAVEBut more graves are being discovered. So whom do you believe? The Church, that claims the students were murdered. Or the Government who says they just disappeared?

You mean like alien adduction?

All this happened in the small city of Iguala in the southernmost Mexican state of Guerrero. It’s in one of Mexico’s poorest regions where student dissent has long been practiced. Demonstrations held by faculty and members of the Raul Isidro Burgos Rural Teacher College of Ayotzinapa had become a convention.

The missing forty-three young people were marching for better teaching opportunities for rural and urban employment. Their families want to know their whereabouts and are getting no answers.

Protest traditions long held by the college have run head-on with cartel controlled local government. Widespread anger has been directed at security failures by the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto. The Mexican Government is not protecting its people. Leaving them to the violent whims of drug gangs. It’s generally believed that the cartels and the government have been integrated.

“Iguala is just one example of the level of decay in state and municipal security institutions,” said Duncan Wood, director of the Mexican Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.
