On March 30, a group of political activists from Mexico came to Minnesota to put pressure on the U.S. and Mexican governments in connection with the fate of 43 Mexican students who were kidnapped by local police in southern Mexico in September of last year. The students have not been found.

In January, an investigation by Mexico’s government concluded that the 43 students had been killed by a local gang, and their bodies could not be returned to their families, because they had been incinerated. The Ayotzinapa Group has focused their Caravana 43 project on challenging that story in cities around the United States, including St. Paul.
