Ayotzinapa Investigations Special Exhibit Page Launch


Washington D.C., April 26, 2022 —On the 26th of every month for the last seven and a half years, the parents of the missing 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College in southwestern Mexico have traveled from their home states to Mexico City to demonstrate and demand information about the disappearance of their sons – victims of a notorious 2014 case of police-abetted kidnapping and high-level government cover-up.  The case has become emblematic of the violence produced from the U.S.-Mexican “war on drugs” and the crisis of forced disappearances and lack of official accountability in Mexico. 

To commemorate this month's 26th, the National Security Archive is relaunching its Ayotzinapa Investigations special exhibits page, which contains all related postings about the event (the most recent was published on April 1), links to the English and Spanish-language podcast series “After/Después de Ayotzinapa,” and related books, reports, projects, videos, and photographs.
