De-Manufacturing Consent- The Iguala Massacre: Why Were 43 Mexican Students Disappeared?

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Andalusia Knoll

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by freelance journalist Andalusia Knoll. We discuss the suspected massacre of students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers College of Ayotzinapa in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Andalusia clears up much of the misinformation within the US and international press on what actually took place, and explains the potential reasons why police and drug cartel members would collude to target, ambush, and kidnap these students.

We also discuss the corrupt ties between drug cartels in the region and Iguala city officials, including the mayor and police chief, and how this incident fits in to the larger picture of Mexico's US-led drug war.

  1. Great interview, Guillermo, as always. Thanks for presenting the details of this important information. We need to understand the real human tragedies going on with our neighbors to the south. Mexico has been a corrupt state for so long, not sure what the solution is or if there is one. We can also witness the ill effects of corruption here in the US; though perhaps not so blatant as murdering so many of our own students in cold blood. To be sure, the US has plenty of blood on its hands with much greater numbers in the many wars we insist on initiating across the globe.
