"43 students who were protesting discriminatory hiring practices for teachers in Mexico have disappeared at the hands of the Mexican police and are feared to have been handed over by the police to drug cartels or criminal gangs to be executed. Six burial pits have been found on the outskirts of the town where the protesting students were disappeared and relatives are awaiting the results of DNA testing to identify the bodies. On September 26, these now disappeared students along with many others from the Aytozinapa teacher training school in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, had been protesting when the police started shooting at the buses they were on. Six students were murdered and many more were taken into police custody, never to be seen again. One student who managed to escape describes how the police “were hitting the students as they took them. People were also scared about being shot so they gave themselves up. 'They thought they would just be arrested. But something else awaited them.'”
