Ayotzinapa Parents’ Caravan of the United States, UTEP Physical Science Bldg, Rm. 115

PARENTS OF 43 MEXICAN KIDNAPPING VICTIMS TO SPEAK IN AT UTEP.
The parent’s visit to CITY forms part of a national speaking tour of the United States during which they will speak in cities across the country to audiences in churches, universities, community organizations, and labor unions about the events of September 26, 2014 when policeman, in the presence of Mexican Army units, killed six, wounded 25, and kidnapped 43 students of the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College. The parents have continued to demand that their children be returned to them “alive as they were when they were taken.” The parents plan to take their case to the Inter-American Commission, Amnesty International and the United Nations. Amnesty International and many other human rights organizations, as well as the U.S. State Department, have for years found Mexico to be violating human rights through arbitrary arrests, torture, and extrajudicial killing. Organizers of the national caravan hope that the parents’ presentations will not only educate the American people about the human rights violations taking place in Mexico, but also lead American citizens and representatives to consider the hundreds of millions of dollars that the United States provides to Mexico through Plan Mérida for military equipment which has been used by the army and the police against Mexican citizens in violation of their rights.
