Solidarity with Ayotzinapa in Edinburgh, Scotland


Supporters of the “disappeared” students of Ayotzinapa, Mexico gathered in Edinburgh today 22 October to participate in the Global Day of Action. Ten of us staffed a stall and distributed hundreds of leaflets echoing the call of the students’ families that the students be presented alive.

The stall, in the Meadows in central Edinburgh attracted much interest as we displayed placards declaring SOLIDARITY WITH THE DISAPPEARED STUDENTS IN MEXICO. Many people signed letters to the Mexican Ambassador in London, and several also expressed surprise that this atrocity had received very little publicity in the mass media. School students took bundles of leaflets to take back to their classmates.

This was not the first solidarity demonstration with Ayotzinapa in Edinburgh; last Sunday several Mexican citizens resident in Scotland’s capital demonstrated at the Mound on Princes Street, displaying photographs of the missing students.
