MEXICO. Taxco, Guerrero. 2014. Digno Cruz (My grand-father-in-law) was crying at home while he was talking about his missing grandsons. The discovery of several mass graves during the search of the
43 normalistas Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, shows the magnitude of the crisis of enforced disappearances in the country. The goverment have found 60 clandestine graves in the cities of Iguala-Taxco with at least 129 bodies (20 women and 109 men). None of them belonged to the 43 normalistas missing in Iguala during the month of September 2014. Official figures show that in recent years there have been 30,000 disappearances and Guerrero is one of the Mexican States that have been most affected.
