Ante La Represión, La Organización: Estudiantes Jalisciences Presentes

I march because I am agitated — Eduardo Carballo Lopez, Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente (ITESO)

My parents, my grandparents are drained — Luis Alberto, Universidad del Valle de Atemajac (UNIVA)

We are irritated of the situation in this country, there are no answers for anything, only repression — Ricardo de Jesus Lupercio, Centro Universitario de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades (CUCSH)

I feel betrayed, stirred. It could have been me. It would be dreadful if no one would remember my name, if no one took action for me, for the suffering of my family — Celeste, Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM) Guadalajara Sur

It is outrageous how a government is capable of disappearing it’s students, how it is possible for a ludicrous person to run this beautiful country and be inept to make justice — Ximena Sanchez, Modulo Santa Anita Preparatoria 9 UDG.

I am marching for people’s rights…for the current injustices, for the monopoly that communication holds, which is Televisa, the president EPN, his cabinet, and [Mexican political party] PRI. — David Alejandro Davila Vazquez, Graduado de Colegio Libre de Estudios Universitarios (CLEU)

I march because it moves me to see the awakening of the people who start to take interest, build consciousness of the situation we live — Norma Mendoza Villalobos, Escuela Normal Superior de Jalisco (ENSJ)

It’s not only us who see it, but the entire world. Everyone is realizing that the state cannot run this country any longer. As citizens, we have the right, but also the obligation of saying that this is our country, the oppressive country we live…and because of that, we come here to express our thoughts; those will not quiet.  — Luigi, UNIVA

Student expressions during the Nov. 20th National March in support of Ayotzinapa in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México.
