43: AYOTZINAPA (visual political ephemera from Oaxaca)
On September 26, 2014, 43 male students from the Ra?l Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers' College
of Ayotzinapa went missing in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico. According to official reports, they
commandeered several buses and traveled to Iguala that day to hold a protest at a conference
led by the mayor's wife. During the journey local police intercepted them and a
confrontation ensued. Details of what happened during and after the clash remain unclear,
but the official investigation concluded that once the students were in custody, they were
handed over to the local Guerreros Unidos ("United Warriors") crime syndicate and presumably
killed. Mexican authorities claimed Iguala's mayor, Jos? Luis Abarca Vel?zquez, and his wife
Mar?a de los ?geles Pineda Villa, masterminded the abduction.
