The families of the 43 disappeared Ayotzinapa students are primarily seeking justice and truth. The case of the students who disappeared in Mexico in September 2014 has been a matter of great concern both nationally and internationally.
The families are demanding that the facts be clarified and that they be given a definitive answer about what happened to their children. They want to know the truth about who was responsible for the disappearance of the students and what happened to them. They also want justice to be done and the guilty to be punished.
In addition to the search for justice, the families demand that exhaustive and impartial investigations be carried out, that this type of act be guaranteed not to be repeated, and that measures be implemented to prevent impunity and protect human rights in Mexico.
The families of the 43 missing students have also been pressing the authorities' handling the case and have denounced irregularities, where there have been, in the official investigation. They have held numerous protests and mobilizations to keep the memory of their children alive and to press for answers and concrete actions.
It is important to highlight that the case of the 43 disappeared students from Ayotzinapa has generated a movement of solidarity and support both inside and outside of Mexico, and has led to a widespread call to address the problem of enforced disappearances and violence in the country.
