We present to you what we may call the first “glimpse” of truth Mexico has had since Tlatelolco ‘681.
Today, living in Mexico in many regions is a continuous struggle against violence, drug cartels and corruption; sadly, they are all part of the same problem where people think only of themselves and how much can they get. The night of the 26th of September 2013 has become one of the greatest transgressions against human rights when 43 students were ambushed by police units in Iguala, Guerrero2 to stop them from protesting against the corruption of the state’s government.
They’re presumed dead, many theories have been formulated, some people say they were burnt, Argentinian Forensics said the burnt bodies aren’t the students. It was an act ordered by the mayor of the town; the search for the bodies discovered dozens of pits3 in Guerrero’s state full with bodies that weren’t the students.
An ongoing story of deceitful activity coming all the way from the top of the political chain “For Better or Worse, Mexico's Turning Point4”, Huffington Post’s quote that leads us to how Mexico’s being manipulated to hide tons of information from public knowledge through the despicable connection between Television Broadcasters5, Media6 magnates and the political arm of Mexico that is trying to control everything since the beginning of the last century.
Today, living in Mexico as a student is a bittersweet sensation smothered by the impotence of watching others empty our country of its resources, its freedom of speech and its security. Enrique Peña Nieto is the current president and current “puppet” that has been targeted lately by the international media because of the many inconsistencies within his presidential period since the very elections and how he won; there’s also knowledge of many murders linked to his previous administration as Mexico’s state governor. There have been so many kinds of protests to date about the 43 missing in many different ways, and when we learned about the Inside Out project, we had an idea. We want the images of this kids witness the change they made and remind the people in our country that we can speak loud and clear by placing their portraits facing the presidential residence Los Pinos in different buildings of the same avenue.
