Business as usual in Mexico despite 43 murdered students

Press/Media: Articles in 'The Conversation'


The killing of 43 student teachers in Mexico has alerted the world to the country’s deteriorating human rights record. While the US and EU governments have expressed concern, others – including the UK – have remained silent.

The students were abducted in September, while they were protesting in the town of Iguala, Guerrero. The mayor, Jose Luis Abarca, is reported to have ordered police to abduct the students, to prevent them disrupting a speech his wife was giving.
