The Mexican federal government has pronounced all missing 43 Ayotzinapa students dead. Parents and supporters continue to ignore any official declarations in the matter because the government only has DNA evidence proving the death of one student. Austrian experts have declared the supposed evidence used to declare the death of the remaining 42 inconclusive and impossible to work with.
The sad truth is that average everyday folks in the USA are just not paying attention.
The disappearance of 43 rural education students in Mexico has struck an international chord elsewhere however. “Disappearance” as a concept is a tough pill to swallow anywhere. When it comes to Latin America, disappearances are not just a painful past; they are an ever painful present, and an extremely terrorizing future.
