3 December, 2014. University for Peace Campus - On 26 September, 2014, 43 students from a rural teacher-training school were abducted by the Mexican police in Iguala and delivered to organised crime agents who, according to the authorities, murdered them and burned their bodies. These bodies have yet to be identified.

The student's parents as well as Mexican civil society and the international community continue to demand accountability from the government through mobilisations around the country and the world.

A group of students at the University for Peace did a performance on Wednesday, December 3rd, to honour them and support the social movement against impunity in Mexico. Video / Photos
