On 2 February more than a two thousand persons from different social, educational, human-rights, and university organizations marched to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the death of the guerrilla commander Genaro Vázquez Rojas which crossed the entirety of the city of Chilpancingo, capital of the state.  The mobilization was led by students of the Normal of Ayotzinapa who demand a clarification of the death of the two students killed on 12 December when the police broke up a protest.  The march lasted for nearly an hour and a half, and at the entrance of the palace of governance a rally was held in which speakers from the Federation of Campesino Socialist Students of Mexico (FECSM) and the State Coordination of Educational Workers of the State of Guerrero (CETEG) demanded that the law be applied against those responsible for the shooting of the two students.

In the march also participated the Regional Coordination of Communal Authorities-Communal Police (CRAC-PC), the Guerrero Network on Human Rights, the Vicente Guerrero Movement, and the Organization of Producers from the Costa Grande, among others, to support the demand of Ayotzinapa for the judgment of the governor: “Shoulder to shoulder, elbow to elbow, we are all Ayotzinapa!”
