Sept. 26, 2021: The Seventh Anniversary

On the seventh anniversary of the atrocity in Iguala, where 43 college students were disappeared, very few facts regarding the event have been established.


Although varied investigations have taken place, including the parents of the students searching on their own, the truth remains elusive. The government has not charged a single person in connection to the mass forced disappearance of students in front of the state courthouse, a government video found regarding the incident has since been destroyed, or hidden, and it is unclear how government officials managed to obtain the bone fragments identified by experts as coming from two of the three Jui disappeared students who have been confirmed dead.

Francisco Cox, one of the outside experts tasked with finding the children, told the journalist John Gibler: “I couldn’t deny that I felt ... a pain that ... for not being able to tell them ... where their sons are.”


Bernabé Abraján, father of Adán Abraján de la Cruz, said, “Since the day of the twenty-sixth, we have been struggling to find our children. The government thought we would give up, because at the beginning it tried to buy us off. It offered us money. But we, as campesinos and parents of our children, told the government that we wouldn’t sell our children.” And he said, “This government needs to realize that we will not give up.”
