More than 35,000 people are now reported disappeared in Mexico.
It’s a staggering number that continues to climb every day.
One of the most notorious cases involves 43 students from a teacher-training college in Ayotzinapa who were taken away by police in September 2016 and never seen again.
The government’s “investigation” has failed to find the students and led to allegations of covering up an extensive web of complicity involving authorities at all levels of the Mexican state.
This is no isolated case. Systemic incompetence and a complete lack of will by State and Federal authorities in Mexico to properly search for and investigate the disappearance of thousands of people is fuelling a human rights crisis of epidemic proportions.
