New clashes broke out at the end of the procession in the center of the capital despite the call to a peaceful march formulated by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, eight years after the drama.

Thousands of demonstrators accused the army on Monday September 26 in Mexico City, during the eighth anniversary of the disappearance of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa, an emblematic case of the “human tragedy” of the more than 100,000 missing in the country. The families of the “43” walked under a banner displaying the words “The army knows it”, a month and a half after an official report has implicated the armed forces for the first time in eight years.
“We demand that we are investigating the military, that we punish them, that we do not only investigate the organized delinquency,” said the mother of one of the young people, Blanca Nava. Students disappeared on the night of September 26 to 27, 2014 in Iguala, in the State of Guerrero (South), where they went to “requisition” buses in order to go to Mexico.
