Narco-Political Violence

By David Johanssen


Mussing 43

What happened to the 43 students who went missing in Southern Mexico in September of last year? According to official reports, they stole several buses to protest a conference led by a mayor’s wife. The local police handed them over to the local crime syndicate, who may have killed them. But if you think you know what this is all about, think again; Mexico’s secrets go far beyond the explosive story of the 43 missing students. Join us for a documentary and discussion of this narco-political violence Tuesday, March 3, at 5pm, as we present The Missing 43. This documentary explores the tragedy and controversy surrounding the disappearance of the young men. 50 pesos.
