On January 26, 16 months after the disappearance of the students of Ayotzinapa Normal Rural School, their fathers and parents marched from the Angel of Independence monument to the Supreme Court of the Nation in Mexico City. During the protest, the relatives of the student teachers insisted on their demand that the Federal Judicial System behave according to law, with impartiality and independence in the case of the protections that the Iguala police have sought against the detention orders for homicide. On arrival at the Zocalo of Mexico City they encountered a heavy security presence, which prevented them from entering the public square.

Before the march, a commission of fathers and mothers of the disappeared students went to the Supreme Court and demanded a meeting with the president of the Court, Luis Maria Aguilar. The attorney for the relatives, Vidulfo Rosales, explained that his objective is that the president of the Court “conducts and manages a meeting with the Iguala courts so that they can fully inform us what proceedings are being conducted, what state the protections are in” and that “their resolutions take into account the gravity of the events.”
