Protest In San Francisco For Missing Ayotzinapa Students

Protest In San Francisco For Missing Ayotzinapa Students

People marched on November 15th from 24th and Mission down to Powell in solidarity with the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, Mexico. They went missing in Iguala, on September 26 and are presumed to have been taken by local police, turned over to a gang and then murdered. They called for the return of the missing students and the resignation of President Nieto.

This was a difficult day for me. Everything seemed to go wrong for me. Getting there last minute, not balancing my Glidecam correctly, forgetting the rest of my ND’s, even having my camera deliberately knocked down by a homeless degenerate in the middle of an interview for no reason that I can fathom. Hell maybe someone who doesn’t like me slipped him a few bills. Either way I still managed to squeeze something together.
