LIVE FROM MEXICO: STUDENTS SPEAK

The disappearance of 43 students in Ayotzinapa, Mexico has unleashed the
anger of those who have had enough of the corrupt system run by a regime of
assassins made up of the Mexican political parties (PRI-PAN-PRD) in
connection with the Cartels.
Students and unions are taking to the streets and have called for a
national general strike to voice their demands: that the students be
returned alive and the immediate resignation of President Peña Nieto.

>> Does anyone know more about the issues at stake here?

>>
>> Universities throughout Mexico are closing and students are marching this
>> weekend in protest of the disappearance of the 43 students at the hand of
>> authorities.

>>
>>
>> Yesterday marches and demonstrations in Mexico City, held in solidarity
>> with the students of Ayotzinapa, reached unprecedented size and intensity.
>>
>> More marches and demonstrations throughout the country have been planned
>> for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week, and calls for the ouster
>> of Mexico's authoritarian neoliberal president, Enrique Peña Nieto, have
>> become louder and more numerous.
>>
>> Adding mometum to the protests are the many universities across Mexico
>> which have announced cessations of activities to show their support for the
>> students of Ayotzinapa.  In total, a minimum of 115 universities will
>> cancel classes at some time during this week.
>>
>> Nevertheless, and in stark contrast to these activities, the president of
>> Goldman Sachs, Gary D. Cohn, stated earlier this week his firm conviction
>> that the "Mexican Moment" will continue.  "We are very exited with what is
>> happening in Mexico with the reform agenda," he said.  "Our clients are
>> excited about the opportunities opening up in Mexico, whether they be in
>> petroleum, natural gas, or on the other hand in telecommunications."
>>
>> Asked about the events in Ayotzinapa, Cohn said it would be difficult for
>> them to have any lasting effect on the Mexican economy.  "It is the
>> Mexicans who seem to be more focused on these events than the rest of the
>> world,"  he said. "I don't want to minimize those events," added Cohn, "but
>> these sort of events happen in other parts of the world."
