On September 26, a convoy of buses carrying students from Ayotzinapa, a teacher training institute in Mexico's southern state of Guerrero, was shot at by local police agents. The student teachers were returning from protests for rural teachers in the city of Iguala. Many of the students were loaded into police vehicles and driven away.

On Nov. 7, Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam told the public that the students were shot, burned in a garbage dump and thrown into a muddy river in black plastic garbage bags. His words were met with disbelief, anger, and indignation not only from the students’ families, but also by people throughout Mexico because they rely on the confessions of three drug cartel hit men, not conclusive evidence — human remains discovered near a landfill based on their information have not yet been identified. This is still an open investigation 7 month later. The parents of 43 Mexican students who disappeared allegedly at the hands of police will be in Sacramento CA, April 8,9, and 10th as part of an international campaign "calling for justice and accountability from the Mexican government."

The parents, known as the "Caravana43," are traveling in three caravans throughout the US, covering over 40 cities.
