On September 26th, 2014, 43 college students were kidnapped and disappeared by local police and cartel members in Mexico's violent southern state of Guerrero.
Since then, outrage and indignation has spilled onto the streets, as people across Mexico ask how the government could not only let something like this happen—but also be complicit in these human rights crimes.
The disappearance of the 43 students became the highest profile example of the country's entrenched corruption in recent years, something that—until now—the government was able to ignore.
