Blanca Luz Nava Vélez and Epifanio Alvarez Carvajal, parents of Jorge Álvarez Nava, one of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa’s teacher training college and classmates, sit in the patio of the teacher training college in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico on November 19, 2014. The relatives of the 43 missing students still do not believe the official line that the young men are all dead, and with classmates, social organizations and human rights defenders, they started on Thursday a national caravan. They split up into three different caravans, branching out to share information face to face with supporters in other cities and rally nationwide support. The three groups will meet in Mexico City on Thursday 20 for a general strike and massive marches to demand justice and fight against corrupted government and organized crime. Criticism of the government has intensified in Mexico, and many are demanding that the search for the 43 missing students continue until there is concrete evidence to the contrary.
