Students from Ayotzinapa teachers school in Guerrero, Mexico, were protesting government reforms on Sept. 26 when police opened fire on their demonstration, killing three students and three bystanders.
Amid the violence, 43 students disappeared. Days later, dozens of local police officers were arrested after confessing they had abducted the students and handed them over to Guerreros Unidos, a local criminal organization.
The incident sparked months of protests across Mexico, with many participants deriding police corruption and calling for the resignation of President Enrique Peña Nieto.
In this striking animation, we hear the voices of the missing students’ classmates and relatives, who say they don't trust the official story of what happened to their loved ones and are determined to find them.
