The Disappeared: More than 28,000 people have gone missing during Mexico’s drug wars. What happened to them? This is the question that drives activist Aracelli Rodriguez whose son Luis Angel, a federal police officer, went missing in Michoacan in 2009. Since the abduction of 43 students in the Mexican state of Guerrero last year, a procession of international observers has been scrutinizing the state of human rights in Mexico. They don’t like what they’ve found. Join Aracelli and Laura Carlsen, director of the Americas Project for the Center for International Policy as they explain. Their talk will be preceded by the hauntingly beautiful short film film Ausencias by Hondura filmmaker Tatiana Hueso.
