Investigative journalist Anabel Hernandez in conversation.


On September 26, 2014, a party of students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College were en route to a protest when intercepted by local police. A confrontation ensued. Come the morning, the students were nowhere to be found.

 

Investigative reporter Anabel Hernández will be in conversation with Gaby Wood discussing her latest book A Massacre in Mexico: The True Story Behind the Missing 43 Students (Verso) which reconstructs the terrible events of that night and its aftermath, giving us the most complete picture available, revealing the profound depths of corruption in the Mexican government and police force—as well as the vulnerability of ordinary Mexicans.

 

English PEN are honoured to be presenting this event following PEN’s campaign to support the struggle of the parents of the disappeared students to discover the truth about their children and the fight for justice and against impunity.
