Police Shoot at Normalista Students of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero

The state police of Guerrero shot at a bus where around 60 students of the normal school of Ayotzinapa were traveling in route to Tixtla after carrying out fundraising activities in Chilpancingo. The acts took place in the area known as “El tunel” where at least 12 normalistas were detained, said the committee of fathers and mothers of Ayotzinapa and the student committee Ricardo Flores Magón of Ayotzinapa.

The parents of the 43 disappeared normalistas in Ayotzinapa and students condemned the aggression and demanded an end to the repression and criminalization against the students, as well as an investigation into the police that shot at the autobus to be sanctioned and prosecuted.

On the other hand, on Tuesday night, normalistas of Ayotzinapa were deprived of their freedom for two hours by the federal police when they were headed to the Rural Normal of Cañada Honda, in Aguascalientes, to carry out an informative brigade regarding how the state that has put aside the investigations for three years since the disappearance of the 43 students.

As they passed for the tollbooth of Peaje León—Lagos de Moreno, the normalista students raised the boom gate as they did not have money to pay the tollbooth. For this, a patrol car of the federal police blocked their passage way and the staff at the booth prevented them from continuing their course, retaining them “for more than two hours.”

“The deprivation of freedom of the Normalista students of Ayotzinapa by the federal police expresses the clear objective to inhibit the protest that we will soon carry out in the mark of three years of the forced disappearance of the 43”, said the parents and normalistas. “To this government, it was not enough to disappear our sons and compañeros, maintaining impunity in the case, today they want to silence us again with repression and prevent our scream demanding truth and justice”, they added.

On September 26th, they will carry out various mobilizations in different parts of the country to demand the live return of the 43 normalistas of Ayotzinapa, three years after the “Night of Iguala”.
