On September 26th 2014, 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers School were forcibly disappeared by governmental forces. The Ayotzinapa case is only one of thousands of forced disappearances throughout the country and has become an emblem of the rampant corruption, impunity, violence and injustice currently lived throughout Mexico and a by-product of the US war on drugs.

Join us on the anniversary of the disappearance of our students as we march to the White House to demand truth and justice and join thousands marching throughout the world in solidarity with the ongoing struggle for human rights in Mexico.

This march will follow the panel event in Potter’s House happening at noon, therefore we will meet on the corner of 16th NW and Columbia Road and march down the White House.
