On September 26, 2014, students from the Rural Normal School 'Raúl Isidro Burgos' in Ayotzinapa, were attacked by the municipal police in Iguala, a city of the Mexican state of Guerrero. The students were collecting funds to attend the commemoration of the Tlatelolco student massacre, 1968, and to commemorate two other students from the same community who were murdered in 2011. The municipal police opened fire against them, killing three students and three more people. Moreover, 43 students were disappeared, and since then there has not been information of their whereabouts. The next day, one of the students murdered, Julio César Mondragón, was found with signs of torture, his face flayed, his eyes taken out. Last Saturday (October 4th), clandestine mass graves were found near Iguala. According to the state's government, some of the bodies could correspond to the disappeared students. Whether the mass grave contains the bodies of the students or not, this is a tragedy that the KCL Mexican Society condemns.
