Mexicanos Unidos on I-5 Over-Pass Protesting 43 Students Kidnapped in Mexico

Here in the U-district a demonstration took place today in response to the 43 students that were kidnapped and believed to be killed in the small town of Iguala, Mexico.

The local chapter of Mexicanos Unidos of Washington had a rally where many showed up holding painted signs with words expressing their anger over the violation of human rights.

On their Facebook page, they state that this protest is to demand the resignation of Enrique Peña Nieto for crimes against humanity.

I saw the display from I-5 as I was driving north-bound and I had to stop and get some pictures. It’s always a powerful thing to see people gathered together united in passion for justice.
