Thousands of protesters blocked the highway leading to Acapulco in southern Mexico on Oct 2nd to press authorities to find 43 students missing since a deadly police shooting during the last weekend in Sept. Some 22 local police have been arrested in connection with the violent incidents in Guerrero while the town's mayor has fled and is being investigated for links to the crimes. The head of security for Iguala was also convicted. A mass grave was found near the town over the weekend, full of charred human remains. "Mexico has become worse than a death camp. I never thought I would live to see something so horrible," said Mariela Lopez, a 56-year-old teacher from Mexico City as she walked under the hot afternoon sun down the capital's central boulevard.
Protesters carried photos of missing students and signs that read "Fascist government, assassin of teachers" as they marched past the skyscrapers of the financial district to a historic plaza lined with colonial buildings.
In Guerrero's capital of Chilpancingo, thousands more marched, blocking the highway that leads from Mexico City to the beach resort of Acapulco.
US puppet Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto vowed to identify those behind the massacre and make sure they face "justice"- or the Mexican "War on Terror." US intelligence & weapons already have militarized Mexican police. Drug cartels have openly evaded "justice" by the US State Dept after HSBC bank was exposed funding war lords. The US actually provided the drug cartel with weapons and took zero steps to condemn these acts.
Protesters are demanding the state's governor Angel Aguirre resign and that the federal government find the missing students and punish politicians linked to organized crime.
"I think these kinds of atrocities happen because the people in power think that they will always be on top, and nobody will be able to touch them," said Marco, a 23-year-old university student who did not want to give his last name.
Over 100,000 deaths have occurred since 2007 in Mexico due to the highest corruption.
