“We always thought it had been the Army,” he accused. Mario César González, father of one of the 43 normal students who disappeared from the Isidro Burgos Normal School in Ayotzinapa.

Nine years after the so-called “Noche de Iguala,” parents questioned the participation of the Mexican Army in the disappearance of the students.

“There is no one else who knows where they took our boys, other than the Mexican Army, there is conclusive evidence that the GIEI left us, who does not want to recognize it and who wants to play with the discredit of our teams and the GIEI, is another thing.

“There is evidence of how the Army moved that day. We always thought it had been the Army, because since our boys left there was an infiltrator. What was the last call from that infiltrator? Who did he call? What did he say? Who put him there? "he questioned César González.

Likewise, they criticized the government's support for the aspirations of Omar García Harfuch to seek the candidacy for the Head of Government of Mexico City, stating that “he received money from Guerreros Unidos, he was in the black folder, his number and his name from the head of Guerrero Unidos… What is happening "That instead of investigating him, they still protect him." to which came a squeal from the spectators.

As night falls and as a setting a walled National Palace, Vidulfo Rosales, lawyer from the Tlachinollan Human Rights Center, highlighted that the case is at a critical moment. “We want from this platform to categorically reject the narrative of events presented yesterday by this government. It is a narrative that is not supported by any evidence. It is a narrative that incorporates elements and data of the so-called Historical Truth,'” he said.

The legal representative of the parents of the normal students, highlighted that among the files reviewed by the GIEI and the Commission for Truth and Access to Justice in charge of Alejandro Encinas, There is evidence of the infiltration of Army elements into the Rural Normal School, who reported each of the normalistas' movements and intercepted the communications of members of the Guerreros Unidos criminal group and police chiefs. “That communication intervention referred to the fate of 17 students.” However, the government has not provided those reports that are in the Regional Intelligence Fusion Center.

“We demand the immediate delivery of that information that can lead to the whereabouts of our 43 colleagues, it is criminal to hide information that can elucidate where at least 17 colleagues are. “This is not from a progressive government, much less from a left-wing government,” he demanded. Rosales.

“This government, far from siding with the victims, has sided with the institutions, particularly the Mexican Army,” reproached Tlachinollan's lawyer.

Noting that the latest government report seeks to criminalize the 43 normalistas, he argued that until now there is no objective report from any organization that corroborates the collusion of organized crime between students and these criminal groups.

He pointed out that “on this path we have seen many irregularities and lies. We thought we had a glimmer of hope but that was not the case. “This government is trying to give us a second Historical Truth on which we do not agree.”


Civil organizations, unions and students previously marched to support the fathers and mothers of the 43 normal students who disappeared in Iguala, Guerrero, with the slogans: “It was the State”, “It was the Army” and “September 26 is not forgotten!”, among others.
