Declaration of solidarity with the students of Ayotzninapa, Guerrero, in Mexico

Meeting of the SI Council at the United Nations in Geneva, 12-13 December 2014

The Council of the Socialist International declares its solidarity with the families of the 43 students from the rural teachers’ college of Ayotzinapa in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, who disappeared in September.

We condemn those responsible for these acts, and offer our full support all the political actors who are pursuing our commonly shared principles of transparency and the fight against organised crime, and seeking to find justice for the students.
