Mexico Takes to the Streets for Students of Ayotzinapa
Mexicans took to the streets on Wednesday in impromptu marches in support of students from a rural teachers’ college in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, who were murdered and disappeared in late September. Police officers and cartel members are suspected of burying the students in mass graves, which were discovered on Saturday. The public outcry led to a call for a national march to demand justice.
More than 50 cities participated from Chiapas to Baja California.

I feel like everyone talks about Mexican emigration to the U.S., but no one talks about why Mexican families are fleeing the country. Always curious why people refer to these families as “illegal immigrants” instead of “refugees”. When you promote deportation of Mexicans who have illegally crossed the border, you are trying to send many of them back to small border towns that have become war zones run by corrupt police and drug cartels.

Africa has a greater population than North and South America combined. Asia has a greater population than the rest of the world combined. But they’re still treated as a pair of internally homogenous entities, each with a single shared culture throughout the continent.
