3 Years of Protests for Mexico's Ayotzinapa 43

IN PICTURES: Mexico remembers the third anniversary of the kidnapping of 43 students at the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers' College in Iguala, Guerrero.

Family members, along with social organizations, have taken to the streets since Sept. 26, 2014, marching on the streets of the capital of Mexico City and nearby towns, demanding the safe and immediate return of the Ayotzinapa students.

Social organizations have denounced the official police report due to a number of discrepancies and have called for renewed efforts into the investigation of the case, with the slogan, “They were taken alive; we want them back alive.”
