    Families of 43 missing students in Mexico, protesters force closure of Acapulco Airport

    November 10, 2014

    Armed with machetes, incendiary bombs, picks and shovels, hundreds of protesters and relatives of the 43 students missing since mid-September in Iguala, Mexico occupied Acapulco’s International Airport Monday afternoon to demand that more be done to find the remains of the unaccounted youth. Dozens of buses carrying the protesters blocked access to the airport for more than three hours, and tourists and travelers were seen walking on the highways with their luggage in hand. The entrances to the airport remained closed. Guerrero Governor Rogelio Ortega said in a news conference before the protest that he will not stop the rally. "I'd rather resign," he said.

    Horrific. 74 have so far been arrested including 36 police officers. Over 100,000 have died violently due to drugs and corruption in Mexico since 2007.
    HORRIBLE country.

    I was watching a news show detailing how Mexico City doesn't provide enough clean water to its citizens. It's too expensive, so they just don't do it. People go to rivers and gather water, gather rain water, etc. to get water not provided by the municipal system. In MEXICO CITY.

    And corporate America just looooooves to build plants and factories and offices there. I guess because there's no environmental regulation, you can bribe your way in and out of everything, and you don't have to pay decent wages, provide safe equipment, or anything an ethical corporation would do. America is now part of Mexico. Most of our citizens will soon be hispanic.

    I find it ironic that so many people are slaughtered in a country with some of the most restrictive gun laws on the planet.

    Mexico leader travels to Asia amid rising unrest over missing students

    Maybe he'll do Mexico a favor and not come back.

    It was revealed that the first lady's 15,000 square foot $7 million dollar home was built and is registered under the name of a company linked to a $4 billion high-speed rail contract.

    In addition to what Simplexity said, the students were from a Mexican left wing bastion college. Evidently, the town in quesiton and Guerrero state in general was refusing to hire graduates of the school as teachers.

    Guerrero is one of the poorer Mexican states and evidently the mayor of the town ran it like his personal mafia fiefdom. The students went to the town to protest the hiring policy, and probably protest against corruption in general.

    The mayor then felt that his fiefdom was under threat. Some protesters were shot by police. Others were arrested and turned over to a narco militia.

    What is ironic about your claim. How would more lenient gun laws have changed the murders and executions committed by firearms?

    Presumably, the purpose of gun-control laws is to reduce gun violence. The irony is that a country with some of the most restrictive gun laws on the planet is also the most violent. You don't see irony in that?

    Much of the violence that's occurred in Mexico has taken place between various drug cartels/criminal gangs. To the degree that they destroy each other they perform a public service. But, inevitably, innocents get caught in the crossfire. Where you have a complete breakdown of civil order and the security/judicial systems have been compromised, as in some areas of the country, otherwise law-abiding citizens should be afforded to opportunity to defend themselves.

    Yes, very much so. It also has the potential to grow. Mexico had a small leftist movement in the 1970s that was also put down by government forces and hired thugs causing the students in question to "disappear".

    I dont know if the leftists in Mexico have enough strength to form their own militia and launch vengeance attacks, but it would not take many dedicated fighters to have a big impact given the general ineffectiveness of the Mexican army.
