Teachers and students have expressed Guerrero and set fire to a government building, after the disappearance of the 43 boys in Iguala
Monday, October 13 a group of protesters - formed mainly by teachers and students - have looted and burned a portion of the seat of government in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, during the demonstrations organized by the disappearance of 43 students of which there is no news from September 26, after a clash with the police. According to the AFP news agency there were no injuries, because the protesters have allowed workers to get out before setting fire to the building; five teachers and two police officers were bruised in a previous clash between police and protesters.
The 43 boys have been missing for more than two weeks, when the municipal police in Iguala, a city of the State of Guerrero, fired on their bus. The Mexican authorities have reported that they are waiting for the results of the DNA from some graves that were discovered a few days ago. The city's mayor, his wife and the police chief were removed from the questions about the case and many Mexicans in the last few days have been protesting in the streets.
Reyes Ramos, head of the teachers' union CETEG (State Coordinator of Teachers of Guerrero), told AFP: Starting tomorrow [Tuesday] we will increase our protest actions and radicalizzeremo movement if the governor will not give us information by midnight on where are the missing students.
