The massacre perpetuated last September 26 to 43 students of the Normal Rural School Ayotzinapa, in the State of Guerrero, Mexico, is one of the worst mass murders occurred in recent years in Latin America.

This brutality not only reflects the state of social deterioration and the violence that exists in Mexico, but also the expansion of the tentacles of drug trafficking and the government's inability to fight crime.

But it is also the product of the marriage and the link between government and police authorities with senior leaders of the drug cartels that have kept the Mexican society in constant anxiety.

The civilian population is the most affected by these alliances. Innocent victims have nothing to do with these positions of power where orders are given to eliminate those who obstruct the existence of such alliances by publicly denouncing them through the press or through marches and vigils convened on social media.

To date, the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto, has not used all the power granted by the Mexican Constitution to arrest and prosecute those responsible of this crime against humanity, a violation of the Supreme Right to Life.

Civilized nations have repudiated this act of barbarism against the 43 students of the school in Ayotzinapa. Human Rights activists have staged protests at Mexican embassies and consulates around the world, to demand Mexican authorities to carry out justice for these students as well as to show solidarity with the affected families.

The Canadian Human Rights International Organization (CHRIO), with its head offices in Toronto, Canada, repudiates such crimes and takes a clear position to never give up until the government and judicial authorities in Mexico have exhausted all the channels to find and bring to justice those responsible for the massacre under the rules issued by the International Humanitarian Law and the Mexican law for crimes against humanity. CHRIO expresses its solidarity with the affected families and joins Mexican Human Rights defenders in their hard work to defend fundamental rights. CHRIO calls on the Mexican government to protect those who perform this admirable work.
