#yamecansé: Murdered College Students and Popular Unrest in Mexico Panel Discussion and Q&A
Tuesday, November 18 4:00 to 5:00pm Auditorium, Loyola-NDM Library
Right now, all over Mexico protests are being held nightly. Last Friday Mexico’s Attorney General announced that forty-three students from a teacher’s college, missing for more than a month, had been executed and incinerated in a municipal dump. The crime, the result of the corruption of town officials and the escalating violence of major drug cartels that hold sway in many parts of the country. Immediately after the announcement, popular discontent with local and national governments, in collusion with drug traffickers or ineffectual in combating them, exploded on social networks via #yamecansé [I’ve had enough] and #yamecansédelmiedo [I’ve had enough of fear] and in the street. Can popular protests create the kind of change that Mexico needs? What will happen next?
Come hear about on-going crisis in a panel discussion with Mexican university students visiting NDM this month along with professors. Discussion in English.
