The Mission Arts and Performance Project got under way this afternoon with a march and community forum to welcome the parents of students from Ayotzinapa, Mexico, who were disappeared last year by the Guerrero Narco/State authorities.

The disappearance of the students has prompted protests throughout Mexico raising allegations of complicity by the Narco/Feds in the Ayotzinapa massacre and in similar instances of official political violence.

Since the disappearance, grassroots supporters have formed caravans to crisscross North and South America, gathering support, exchanging information and, perhaps, laying the seeds for truly disruptive political networks.

Expressions of solidarity with Mexican citizens were mixed with protests of two recent cases of official violence in the Mission: the deaths of Alex Nieto and Amilcar Perez-Lopez.
