March 28 saw more angry protests in Mexico’s conflicted southern state of Guerrero, as students from the rural college of Ayotzinapa clashed with police in the state capital Chilpancingo at a march demanding the return alive of the 43 abducted students from the school. Cars were set on fire as police attacked the marchers. The 43 students disappeared during protests in the Guerrero town of Iguala last September, and are now believed to have been turned over a murderous narco-gang by corrupt police. The weekend before the Chilpancingo demonstration, family members of some of the 43 missing students held a vigil in New York City’s Union Square—one stop on a tour of US cities to raise awareness on their plight and protest Washington’s “Drug War” aid to Mexico’s brutal and corrupt police forces. Felipe de la Cruz, a spokesperson for the Ayotzinapa families, told the crowd in Union Square: “Here, from the heart of imperialism, we are not going to permit this case to be closed.” The group’s most recent stop, on March 29, was Minneapolis, where they held a public forum at the city’s Church of the Ascension.
