Cradle Of Murders

"A political insurgency was repressed with violence... The massacre has shown just
how fragile Mexico's democratic institutions are." -Sergio Aguayo

"Pressure continues to mount on the Mexican authorities to find 43 student teachers who disappeared three weeks ago in the southern city of Iguala, many of them after being arrested by local police... Thousands marched through the resort city of Acapulco on Friday calling for the return of the students alive in the latest in a series of protests around the state of Guerrero, where the events happened, as well as in other parts of the country and abroad." -The Guardian
