Human Rights Violations - Guerrero Students: Student teachers involved during march supporting Guerrero governor

The Guerrero student protest story gets even more complicated. See the MexicoBlog summary of events in this story.

Translated by MexicoBlog

Milenio: Students of the  Rural Normal School in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero protested while members of civil society, state government workers, business and political leaders held a march today "for the law, peace and the rule of law." Some of the protesters said that the aim of the march is to support the governor of Guerrero, Angel Aguirre Rivero, and others indicated that it is for the closure of the Normal School "Raúl Isidro Burgos" of Ayotzinapa.

Hundreds of protesters were mostly dressed in white... (Some) more banners read "We want peace in the state," "We are tired of Ayotzinapa" and "Guerrero has an angel," referring to the governor, Angel Aguirre Rivero. The march involved both politicians and workers from the Union of Public Servants of the State of Guerrero (SUSPEG). The poet Mauricio Leyva was responsible for coordinating the mobilization, and said he was in support of the governor Aguirre Rivero.

... Also at the rally was former president of the Superior Court of Justice, Jesus Hernandez Araujo, who called for the closure of the Normal Rural Ayotzinapa, whose students, he said, have been devoted to disturbing the social order and peace. He also defended the governor Aguirre Rivero and called his government  democratic, as just over a million people voted for him in the elections of January 30, 2011.

The leader of entrepreneurs from Chilpancingo, Lujano Francisco Tapia said that it was a march of society to tell the state government and the students of Ayotzinapa "we're tired of illegality."

The disagreement is due to the mobilization of the normal students of Ayotzinapa, who for two months have not had classes, due to an internal problem among teachers. The students are also taking actions to demand clarification of the murder of two colleagues killed in a clash with police elements, when they were blocking the Highway of the Sun on 12 December."
