The president was referring to the marches involving tens of thousands of Mexicans to remind young people missing in Iguala and demand justice to a state that does not stop to take responsibility in the case. The families of the 43 students Ayotzinapa who disappeared on 26 September at the hands of corrupt police and criminals returned Friday to experience moments of frustration and anger at the lack of progress in official investigations.
After participating in the protests Thursday in the capital, parents gathered on Friday for the third time with the National Security commissioner , Monte Alejandro Rubido, and the director of the Criminal Investigation Agency prosecutor Thomas Zerón in Chilpancingo , the capital of Guerrero.

According to Rosales, the only new information provided by officials was the arrest of the Secretary General of Council of Cocula , Cesar Ramirez Nava, who is allegedly linked to the disappearance of the students.
Furthermore, Rubido informed them that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CNDH) appoint 10 people from Latin America to assist in the investigations.

According to the testimony of three members of Guerreros States, students of a school for teachers Ayotzinapa were killed and incinerated in the trash because they thought they were members of the rival group, The Reds.
