Learn how to do effective activism on Duke's campus

 
 

A group representing the parents of the 43 students kidnapped in late September in Guerrero, Mexico will arrive in Durham, NC to speak about their children’s experiences and about the human rights violations occurring in Mexico. Photos of the students’ faces, carried on placards in demonstrations throughout Mexico and in other countries, have become international symbols of the tens of thousands of forced disappearances and over 100,000 killings in Mexico since 2006. The parents will be speak at a press conference on March 30. The parent’s visit forms part of a national speaking tour of the United States to discuss the events of September 26, 2014 when police and gangsters killed six, wounded 25, and kidnapped 43 students of the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College. The parents have continued to demand that their children be returned to them “alive as they were when they were taken.” Sponsored by Duke Romance Studies, the Kenan Institute for Ethics, and the Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute.
