Students at the Natural Science and Research Lab made signs in solidarity with the Mexican students who disappeared in late September. A score of students wanted to show support for the families of those who have disappeared. On Nov. 20, these students wore black and demanded a response from the Mexican government regarding the fate of the missing students.
Forty-three students of the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College, intending to hold an education protest in their hometown, went missing in Guerrero, Mexico. On Nov. 7, Mexican Attorney General Jesus Karam announced the discovery of plastic bags containing the remains of what is suspected to be the missing students. Investigations are still underway to identify the remains.
