The Popular Revolutionary Army says that the explosion in a Soriana department store was an attack in demand of the return of the Ayotzinapa students.
The Popular Revolutionary Army (EPR) claimed responsibility on Tuesday’s bomb attack against a Soriana department store in the municipality of Ecatepec, in demand for the presentation of the 43 missing students from the Ayotzinapa teachers training school, disappeared since September 26.
“The ‘It’s Enough!’ Popular Militias are rising our voices with a political military action of physical character and limited reach, with explosives, against the Soriana store in Valle de Aragón, Ecatepec, a company which in a very clear fashion supported the election fraud which imposed the current mafia-styled government and so shares the responsibility of the crimes committed by this bad government,” according to a release by the guerrilla group.
The explosion damaged the Soriana store, two banks and two stores in a commercial plaza.
In the same document, the EPR also demanded the release of the people detained during the many protests against the disappearance of the students.
The guerrilla group from the state of Guerrero also presented a “counterproposal” to the formation of a joint commission between the relatives of the students and the authorities, opting instead for a Citizen’s Truth Commission, with representatives of their families, the school, the local towns and independent organizations, in order to investigate their disappearance.
“Today they pretend to close the Ayotzinapa case saying, with no proof, that it is impossible to identify the remains because the hitmen turned them to ashes which they dropped in the waters, and so there is no DNA to verify their identities. This position not only looks for their physical killing, but also the death of all hope,” according the EPR.
