After Iguala, what's next for Mexico?
Earlier this year, you may have heard of an incident in a small city in Mexico, where a group of 43 teaching students disappeared. The men who vanished in September were studying at a rural college called Ayotzinapa Normal School. On September 26, more than 100 students from the school had been protesting teacher hiring practices and funding for teachers’ colleges in the nearby city of Iguala. This week on Global Journalist, we look at the investigation, and what effect the disappearances have had in Mexico. Our guests:
- Tracy Wilkinson, the Los Angeles Times bureau chief for Mexico
- Vladimir Beciez Romero, Technical Secretary of the Political Affairs and Government Committee in the State Congress of Guerrero, who has been participating in the protests
