On September 26, 2014, 43 students from the Isidro Burgos Normal School located in Tíxtla disappeared in Iguala – Guerrero state, Mexico. Other students were found dead. The state created several fake versions and tried to hinder investigations at all costs for 5 years, including accusing and defaming the students and their parents. In the end, what is known is that the state worked alongside the military to disappear with the students and hide evidence of their practices of state torture and terrorism.

Since then families and social movements have fought for justice. Under the slogan: Alive they were taken, alive we want them!
