“Son, listen, your mother she is in the fight!” Collectives of mothers and relatives of disappeared persons demonstrated this Monday through the streets of the historic center of Mexico City on Mother’s Day to demand the search for their loved ones.
The mobilization was part of the tenth edition of the National Dignity March, which started from the Angel of Independence and reached the Monument to the Revolution, in Mexico City.
With slogans, posters, and photographs, the Movement for Our Disappeared in Mexico (MNDM), a group of more than 60 collectives, demanded that seven demands be addressed.
The first was comprehensive care of the cases, with an urgent search program, immediately, and the next was the immediate federal attraction of all the cases.

A census of disappearance reports with a report card was also requested for each case and the creation of a special sub-prosecutor’s office for disappeared persons at the federal level.
The last three petitions indicated the creation of an investigation protocol homologated to the entire Republic, of a federal program of attention to the families of disappeared persons, and to accept all the recommendations of the UN working group on forced disappearances.
