In the wake of repression of student movements and guerrilla uprisings during 1960’s, the Mexican government developed a systematic program of counterinsurgency against a population considered political dissident. These operations made by the military police included forced disappearance, torture and military strategies such as devastating rural communities. Guerrero was one of the states most affected, reporting 650 cases of forced disappearance, of which 473 cases were located in the Atoyac municipality. Professor Rangel and Professor Sánchez will deliver a talk addressing the issues of state terrorism and violations of human rights as well as the long struggle Atoyac people have faced in order to put an end to this impunity.
