It has now been a year since 43 students were kidnapped and apparently massacred in Mexico. And those here in Mexico City marching in the students' honor refuse to let the crime be forgotten. They carry signs calling for justice and demanding "not one more disappearance." (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) FELIPE DE LA CRUZ, SPOKESPERSON AND REPRESENTATIVE OF THE FAMILIES OF THE 43 STUDENTS WHO DISAPPEARED, SAYING: "We are millions of Mexicans and people who are not willing to allow this crime to remain with impunity." The Mexican government says the students from the Ayotzinapa teachers training college were rounded up by corrupt police in the city of Iguala, then turned over to a gang that burnt the students in a nearby dump. But a recent report cast doubt on the official investigation, prompting more anger from the public. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) RAMIRO, STUDENT AT THE AYOTZINAPA NORMAL SCHOOL, SAYING: "We call on all society, all people, to come together with us in this struggle because it's not just Ayotzinapa, because Ayotzinapa means all people." President Enrique Pena Nieto has vowed to continue the investigation, though many here doubt Mexico's ability to solve the crime and find out exactly what happened to the students.
