Overview

#YaMeCanse is an ongoing social media protest against the Mexican government's uninspired handling of the mass kidnapping of 43 male students at the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers' College of Ayotzinapa in Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico. Since the mysterious disappearance of the students in late September 2014, the official investigation has concluded that the students had traveled to Iguala to participate in an anti-government protest, during which they were taken into the custody of local police and subsequently handed over to the local crime syndicate named Guerreros Unidos ("United Warriors").

Background

According to the findings of the official investigation, on September 26th, 2014, 43 male students from the Teacher's College of Ayotzinapa traveled to Iguala to take part in a protest against what they considered to be discriminatory hiring and funding practices by the Mexican government. During the journey, local police intercepted them and a confrontation ensued. Details of what happened during and after the confrontation remain unclear, but the official investigation concluded that once the students were in custody, they were handed over to the local Guerreros Unidos ("United Warriors") crime syndicate and presumably killed.[2]

Notable Developments

#YaMeCansé / #Estoycansado

The hashtag originated from a response given by Jesus Murillo Karam, Mexico's attorney general, at a press conference held on November 7th, 2014 about the latest development on the case[1], during which he was quoted as saying "Ya Me Cansé" ("I've had enough" in English) in an attempt to evade questions from the journalists (shown below). Karam's response instantly sparked outrage among the protesters and college students across the country.
