Parents Storm a Military Base: Mexico’s Missing Students (Dispatch 2)

Four months after 43 students from the Ayotzinapa Normal School were forcefully disappeared by the local police and a drug gang, the Mexican authorities are ready to close the case. The Mexican federal prosecutor said that the version of the events in which the students were killed, incinerated in a dump, and their remains disposed of in a river is a “historical truth.” But the parents of the missing are firm on their doubts about what authorities have said. They still believe that federal forces participated in the disappearance, and plan to continue escalating their protests until their sons are returned alive — even if it means confronting the army themselves.

Discovering a Mass Grave: Mexico’s Disappeared Students (Excerpt)

Watch the full length “The Missing 43: Mexico’s Disappeared Students” – http://bit.ly/15QIqps

On September 26, students from the Teachers College of Ayotzinapa in Mexico en route to a protest in Iguala were intercepted by police forces. In the ensuing clash, six students were fatally shot and 43 were abducted. Investigations over the following weeks led to the startling allegations that the police had acted at the behest of the local mayor, and had turned over the abducted students to members of the Guerreros Unidos cartel. All 43 students are now feared dead.

The case has come to represent the negative feeling of the Mexican public toward the state of justice and the rule of law in Mexico. The events have now galvanized the survivors of the attack and the disappeared students’ parents. Nationwide demonstrations have increased in intensity, and recently led to government buildings in the state of Guerrero to be set on fire.

VICE News travels to Guerrero, ground-zero for the protest movement that has erupted since the disappearance of the students. We meet with survivors of the Iguala police attack and parents of the missing students, accompany volunteer search parties, and watch as protests against the government and president reach boiling point.

VICE News meets with Sergio Berni, Argentina’s national security secretary, to talk about Operation Rosario, the largest anti-drug operation ever carried out in the country.

In Rosario, Argentina’s third most populated city, slums known as villas miserias are beset with poverty and crime. As drug use has grown among the city’s population, it has spawned a violent drug war that is little known outside of the country.

Undocumented and Underage: The Crisis of Migrant Children

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Between October 2013 and May 2014, authorities at the US-Mexico border began detaining underage migrants at an alarming, never-before-seen rate. During this period, thousands of underage migrants ended up in Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detention facilities along the border.

Capacity at CBP detention facilities was overwhelmed by the influx of migrants, who predominantly came from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. As overcrowding became more severe, conditions for the migrants worsened. Lacking proper installations and sufficient personnel at the facilities, Department of Homeland Security officials began to release underage migrants into the custody of family members in the US, and cited them to attend immigration hearings at a later date.

The situation is similar in Mexico. The flow of underage migrants in the border region has increased rapidly, and shelters for child migrants report that the Central American population they care for now outnumbers the population of Mexican children.

VICE News travelled to the border between Texas and Tamaulipas to speak to people who have been detained on both sides of the border. They told us about their reasons for crossing the border, how they were detained, what their stay was like inside the detention centers, their plans for the future, and their fears.

Now migrants have two options: return to their country, where they could be killed by gang-related violence, or attempt to enter the United States again, hoping that their luck will change, and they will achieve their American dream.

Back Alley Nurseries: Sex Workers of Bogotá

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In a corner of Santa Fe, one of Bogotá’s seedier neighborhoods, a woman named Luz Marina runs a nursery for the children of prostitutes who work in the city’s red light district. She charges $5 to look after babies and young children while their mothers sell their bodies, often for between $15 and $30. When the mothers can’t pay, Luz Marina doesn’t make a fuss, looking after their children for free. Over the years, women have left babies with her and never returned. For all her work helping children, she receives no assistance from the local government — she does it because nobody else will.

VICE News spent time with Luz Marina in Bogotá, documenting her nursery for Bogota’s forgotten children.

Mexican Oil and Drug Cartels: Cocaine & Crude (Full Length)

Watch more here: http://bit.ly/2wMCWhh

VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels to Mexico to see the effects of cartel oil theft firsthand.

Mexico’s notoriously violent drug cartels are diversifying. Besides trafficking narcotics, extorting businesses, and brutally murdering their rivals, cartels are now at work exploiting their country’s precious number one export: oil.

Every day as many as 10,000 barrels of crude oil are stolen from Mexico’s state-run oil company, Pemex, through precarious illegal taps, which are prone to deadly accidents. Pemex estimates that it loses $5 billion annually in stolen oil, some of which ends up being sold over the border in US gas stations. As police fight the thieves, and the cartels fight each other, the number of victims caught in the battle for the pipelines continues to climb.

In Part 1 we embeds with Mexican soldiers on patrol as they survey the oil pipeline and protect employees in violent Reynosa.
