Mexico: Thousands of missing persons’ mothers gather for annual march

Thousands of mothers whose sons and daughters have gone missing took part in an annual march in Mexico City on Friday, calling on the government to do more to find their loved ones so they can have closure. «I want to see him, alive or dead, but I want them to give him to me because it is exhausting day after day to be wondering, where is he? Where did they leave him? Where is his body? Where was... Еще he injured?» said Francisca Lopez, whose son disappeared three years ago. Footage shows the protesters marching through the Mexican capital with signs and photos of their missing children. Edith Olivares of Amnesty international said, «This current government has recognised that more than 40,000 people are missing. But each year, we come to this march, and the figure has increased — since last year 5,000 more people have gone missing.» She added, «In this country, there are more than 36,000 bodies that have not been identified, therefore we could make a link between missing persons and people who have not been identified.»
