Furious students burn Mexican government building in protest over police corruption, demand justice for missing students
October 16, 2014

Hundreds of residents in a southern-Mexican city smashed up the state capital building in a furious protest over the continued lack of information about 43 local college students, believed to have been abducted by corrupt police.

The local police are allegedly working with a powerful drug cartel and it’s feared that 10 newly discovered mass graves may contain the bodies of the students taken on September 26. “Up to 20” charred remains were discovered on Saturday.

As an investigation is underway, 26 police officers have so far been arrested, a number of which admitted to working with the Guerreros Unidos – an infamous drug cartel. Arrest warrants have also been issued for the mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Albarca, his wife and his security chief, but they have gone into hiding.

The building in Chilpancingo, the capital of Guerrero state, was seen from a distance, engulfed in flames. 
According to local authorities, the crowds included hundreds of students and teachers from the Ayotzinapa teachers’ college, who blockaded the building and used sticks, rocks and Molotov cocktails to attack it.

They initially tried to get into the state congress, but police in riot gear repelled the crowd.

This comes more than two weeks after a serious incident in Iguala, also in Guerrero state, involving the shooting of six students by police during a rally in support of rural teachers’ rights. The law enforcers opened fire on a bus carrying protesters and arrested dozens of students, who have not been seen since.

The situation touches on a problem that’s been plaguing Mexico for a long time – police corruption and rampant organized crime by ruthless cartels.

Monday’s events come after a case of mistaken identity, during which the police shot and wounded German student Kim Fritz Keiser of the Monterey Institute of Technology, according to state authorities.

Keiser was travelling with her other foreign classmates in a van from Acapulco, which passes through Chilpancingo. At the time, the police were involved in another, unrelated confrontation with kidnappers, and erroneously assumed the people in the van had some sort of connection with the kidnapping. The state prosecutor’s office told AP that, as the officers tried to pull the van over, some crackling sound resembling a gunshot was heard from inside the vehicle. The police shot back, wounding the student.

Fearing that it was a case of armed men kidnapping students, the driver of the van refused to stop and drove away from the scene.

The officers involved in the incident have been detained and their weapons are being examined, authorities say.

Warnings have been issued by US authorities in the past to avoid the northwestern part of the state of Guerrero, because of frequent violence occurring in places like Iguala.

Me dueles, México.

We are Ayotzinapa

I’m lying on the ground
You can see where they stabbed and cut out my face.
My teeth are visible, instead of a face, there is just exposed flesh
And you are tormented by the two holes that are where my eyes should be.

My classmates were searching,
And they found me turned into a symbol.

They wanted to take me away from my people
Steal their memories to kill me, to erase me, to make me disappear for once and forever.
They wanted to turn me into their crime, their threat, a scarecrow, an intimidation.

But I live.

I live when my mother cries as she whispers my name with a broken voice.
I live in the funeral filled with friends and loved ones,
A suffering crowd who’s presence stands against terror
And declares that between them, someone had lived,
A boy who they met, saw and wanted to see.
Someone who is still loved in their pain, their heart and their memories.
I am not the senseless crime they tried to turn me into.

I live in a tear of rage, in a raised fist,
A firm step that marches over the enemy.
I live in your resistance. 
I live in your protest.
In your compromise and your effort.

Swear to me you will not give up.
Do so, looking straight into my eyes.

Take a look at the flesh, the blood and the bones in which they left me.
And observe the sight of who I once was.

Student.
Normalista.
Brother.

Do not forget me.
If you forget me, they will win.
If you confuse me for what they have left on the ground,
I will only be a tortured corpse, and that is what they want.

Those who waited for me.
Who looked for me, who followed me,
Who oppressed me so I will stop being human.

But they failed.

Those who serve death,
Who crush the innocence and trust of the poor so they will keep quiet.
So they will stay still.
So they will let themselves be killed.

But they failed.

Because the face they took, is mine.
But the flesh they left, is yours.

These bones belong to you, and you too are missing your eyes.
My family mourns me and my people hides.
But when we come out to take the streets,
We won’t be able, no matter how hard we try,
We won’t be able to be an innocent town no more,
We will not be a town that trusts, we will be fire, light, sound and wind.

We will be the redeeming army.
The hurricane that takes away the ashes so the future may come.
We will be the winged death of justice that values reason and holds their weapons with strength to impose.

My people will be the return of justice and history.
