Ayotzinapa: Chronicle of a State Crime/ Ayotzinapa: Crónica de un crimen de Estado

September 26 — the one-year anniversary of the Ayotzinapa students' forced disappearance from Iguala, Mexico — is coming up. Yet the impunity of taking student teachers en masse laughs at the face of any democracy, and we should all cry out.

As the new semester begins, please share with everyone this film with English subtitles — Ayotzinapa, Chronicle of a State Crime— including your classes if you are teaching at the university level, especially. This film is essential to courses where social justice themes play a vital part, as these 43 student teachers are still nowhere to be found. Thus, you can discuss the wherewithal of government corruption and the narco-state. 

What happens if...

This film is a perfect opportunity to share with students, friends, professors, and colleagues what is going on in the world around us, at least south of us in Mexico. And interestingly, it was in the Texas Theater where John F. Kennedy's assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was apprehended. Showing the film about the students' forced disappearance at this theater then is telling... two horrible happenings of history?
