On September 26, 2014, police in Iguala, Mexico, attacked five busloads of students and a soccer team, killing six people and abducting 43 students—now known as the Iguala 43—who have not been seen since.
Following the atrocity committed against the students of the Ayotzinapa Teachers’ College, John Gibler traveled to the region to conduct interviews with the survivors, as well as with the families of the students, for his book I Couldn’t Even Imagine That They Would Kill Us: An Oral History of the Attacks Against the Students of Ayotzinapa. Publishers Weekly called the book “an unforgettable reconstruction of a national tragedy.” Gibler appeared on Democracy Now! In 2014 to discuss “Are Mexico’s Missing Students the Victims of U.S.-Backed Drug War?”
