#AceNewsServices – MEXICO CITY – Nov.09 – This is a follow-up from my post yesterday and thanks to RT and their team: A group of protesters in Mexico City have tried to break into the National Palace and have set its front doors on fire in response to government’s alleged role in the abduction and murder of 43 students who went missing in September.

The rally’s participants used a metal police barricade as a battering ram, trying to storm the National Palace in Mexico City, which is mostly used for ceremonies involving President Enrique Pena Nieto.


Having failed to break into the National Palace, protesters set its front doors on fire. They managed to damage the entrance to the building, but were unable to get inside and were eventually driven away by police.

As the demonstrators were trying to forcefully break into the National Palace, another large crowd was protesting in front of the attorney general’s office.

There have been reports of injuries and arrests, as police dispersed the raging crowds in Mexico City.

The storming of the National Palace came as the climax of Saturday’s mass rally which was inspired by Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam’s revelation Friday that three Guerreros Unidos gang members in custody had confessed to killing the students and incinerating their bodies, and had claimed that the young men were handed over to them by the police.

Infuriated by alleged police involvement in the abduction of students, hundreds of protesters on Saturday set cars on fire, painted graffiti and threw rocks at government offices.

“We are asking the same thing as usual. We want to see our comrades alive,” a masked student told AFP as others chanted, “They took them alive, we want them back alive.” The students went missing on September 26, when they clashed with police during a protest in the southwestern town of Iguala. After police detained them and took them away, the students were not seen again.

Protesters wearing masks outside the Guerrero state building in Chilpancingo tossed firebombs and torched around a dozen vehicles, including trucks and a federal police vehicle.

Besides the allegations that the students were led to their eventual deaths by law enforcement agents, Mexicans were furious with the Attorney General’s remarks during the press conference. After an hour of fielding questions, Jesus Murillo Karam abruptly signaled for an end to the press conference by turning away from reporters and saying, “Ya me canse” or “I’ve had enough.”

The phrase immediately exploded on social networks while protesters used the phrase to draw graffiti as a sign of dissent. “Enough, I’m tired of Murillo Karam,” says one. Another asks, “If you’re tired, why don’t you resign?”

Others vented their frustration with messages such as “Enough, I’m tired of living in a narco state” or “Enough, I’m tired of corrupt politicians.”

In taped confessions, gang members said they took students to a landfill in the town of Cocula aboard two trucks, where they killed them and spent 14 hours burning their bodies and belongings.

In connection with the massacre, authorities said they have already arrested 74 people, including the ousted mayor, Jose Luis Abarca, his wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda, 36 police officers and several Guerreros Unidos gang members.

Meanwhile, the parents of the missing students say they will not accept they are dead until independent Argentine forensic experts deliver DNA results. An Austrian university is helping identify the remains through a DNA test, but the chief prosecutor added that there was “a lot of evidence… that could indicate it was them.”

The pre-dawn raid to seize Jose Luis Abarca and his wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, took place in Iztapalapa, a working-class neighborhood in Mexico City.

The students from a teachers’ college went missing September 26, allegedly abducted by police officers and a drug cartel.

#AceWorldNews – MEXICO CITY – October 28 – Mexican authorities searching for 43 missing college students have found human remains in a new area of southern Guerrero state and are testing to see if they belong to the young men who last were seen in police custody a month ago, a government official said Monday.

Authorities came upon the new location based on statements from four people arrested early Monday, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

The new remains were found in Cocula, a town about 10 miles (17 kilometres) from where the students last were seen.

Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam confirmed the four arrests in a press conference but made no mention of more remains or mass graves.

He said some of those arrested could be members of the Guerreros Unidos cartel responsible for the actual disappearance of the students after an attack by local police.

Two of the detainees said they received a large group of people around Sept. 26, the date the students went missing, Murillo Karam said.

‘ Federal and State Police Raid Home in Zamora and Rescue 458 Children Suffering Sexual Abuse ‘

#AceWorldNews MEXICO CITY (Michoacan) – July 16 – Federal and state police officers raided a group home Tuesday in the western state of Michoacan and rescued 458 children who were forced to beg for money and suffered sexual abuse while being held against their will in filthy conditions, Mexico‘s top prosecutor said (AP)


Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said police also rescued 138 adults from the Great Family group home in the city of Zamora.

The group home residents were kept in deplorable conditions, fed rotten food and made to sleep on the floor among rats, ticks and fleas and many of them were never allowed to leave the premises, Murillo Karam said at a news conference attended by top federal investigators and Michoacan Gov. Salvador Jara.

“I’m in utter dismay because we weren’t expecting the conditions we found at the group home,” Jara said.

Police detained the home’s owner, Rosa del Carmen Verduzco, and eight workers for questioning, Murillo Karam said.

` Mexican Government States Vigilante Groups Have Until May 10 To Register Their Guns ‘

#AceWorldNews – MEXICO CITY  – May 10 – The Mexican government says vigilante groups in the western state of Michoacan will have until May 10 to register their guns and decide whether to join the army’s “rural defence corps.”

The government had made little headway in a plan announced in January to put the estimated 20,000-strong vigilante force in the western state of Michoacan under the control of the army.

Knights Templer - MEXICO

But the government commission for Michoacan said late Monday it had agreed to extend the deadline for joining the rural defense corps, a little-used, century-old body that armed farm workers to fight bandits and uprisings in the countryside.

The heavily armed “self-defense” groups have posed a thorny problem for the government. While they have earned popularity by driving the vicious Knights Templar drug cartel out of many parts of Michoacan, some of the vigilantes themselves have been accused of looting and killing.

Dozens of others remain in jail on charges of carrying weapons such as assault rifles that are prohibited for civilian use.
