Students at Cal State Los Angeles University and Workers’ Voice declare our solidarity with the international students’ struggle but especially today with the student movement in Mexico, where the students struggle and community are violently being repressed.
In the town of Iguala, 6 people were shot to death, 3 of them were student activists from Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers College of Ayotzinapa. Another 17 student activist were wounded and at least 44 student activist were abducted by police and thugs. Neither of the kidnapped student activist have been seen since September 26.
October 2nd marked another year of the 1968 Massacre of Tlatelolco. The number of murdered students during that time is still unknown (estimating from 300 – 1000). Its important to see that today we still are making history. Today we see other students being repressed and murdered for standing up and demanding, with an open fight, proper living conditions. Its clear that from Ferguson to Palestine, Hong Kong to Mexico, Brazil and all over, the fight continues.
For this reason we want to make a CALL TO ACTION to all students, activist, and community members of Los Angeles for a Rally on Oct.21st at Cal State L.A. to denounce the repression, murder and kidnapping of the students of Mexico.
ONE STRUGGLE, ONE FIGHT!
STUDENTS OF THE WORLD UNITE!
