The official version, or rather, what we know is that on the night of September 26, the students were attacked by order Iguala’s mayor, Jose Luis Abarca, and his wife, María de los Angeles Pineda Villa, and then handed over to the cartel Guerreros Unidos, before disappearing. But another version has surfaced as a journalistic investigation found through official documents, videos and testimonies found that the attack was orchestrated and executed by the Federal Police, with the military’s complicity. In other words, Federal forces actively participated in the attack against the 43 student teachers of Ayotzinapa.
The study conducted with help from the Investigative Reporting Program of UC Berkeley, indicates that in fact the Federal Police was directly involved in the attack, contrary to the reports released by Mexico’s PGR. According to Proceso magazine‘s reports the attack and disappearance of the students was absolutely premeditated in order to suppress the school’s ideology and political infrastructure, as the 43 missing students were part of the Comité de Lucha Estudiantil (Student Action Committee) and 10 of the victims were “political activists in training” from the Comité de Orientación Política e Ideológica or COPI (Political and Ideological Orientation Committee).
