Ayotzinapa: Mexico’s Missing Students – An exhibition and event at the Scottish Parliament by Jan Nimmo

An exhibition of my 50 portraits made for the parents of the students from the teacher training college, Raúl Isidro Burgos, in Ayotzinapa, Mexico. 43 students were disappeared, 3 murdered, 2 badly injured, in September 2104 and a further 2 were murdered in October 2016. Read more here. Thanks to Linda Fabiani MSP  who sponsored the exhibition and to her staff, Mairi Tulbure and Maria Krug. This exhibition honours the students and sends a message of solidarity from Scotland to their families, who are still awaiting truth, justice and reparation.

The exhibition is accompanied by a digital presentation of photos of the portraits in action, in the hands of the students’ parents, from human rights activists including Eréndira Sandoval Carrillo, Liliana Osorio, Norma Velásquez, Tryno Maldonado and more.
