On December 17th, at a press conference held at the headquarters of the Normal Rural School of Ayotzinapa, relatives of students who lost their lives in different events since 2011 announced the formation of the Committee for The Other Forgotten that will seek to obtain justice in their cases. This Committee is made up of relatives of Gabriel Echeverria de Jesus and Alexis Herrera Pino who were shot in Chilpnacingo in December 2011; of Freddy Fernando Crispin and Eugenio Alberto Tamarit, who were run over in the vicinity of Atoyac in January 2014; of Julio Cesar Ramirez Nava, Daniel Solis Gallardo and Julio Cesar Mondragon Fontes who were executed in Iguala on September 26th, 2014; and Filemon Tacuba Castro and Jonathan Morales Hernandez who were killed in October 2016, on the road that connects Tixtla with Chilpancingo, by alleged members of organized crime

They announced that as the first action they will move to Mexico City to request a hearing with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, and the Under Secretary of Human Rights and Population, Alejandro Encinas, to present their demands. They claimed that despite having spent several years fighting for justice, no one has paid attention to them. They finally declared that “they will not leave in peace” those who are responsible for these murders: former governor Angel Aguirre Rivero, former Guerrero attorney Alberto Lopez Rosas, former federal public security head Genaro Garcia Luna and former president Felipe Calderon Hinojosa.
