The events of late September have shaken Mexico: a police attack on students in the city of Iguala, leading to the disappearance of 43 people who were turned over by the municipal police to a drug cartel. Journalist John Gibler has been reporting from Iguala. He discusses how the Mexican state benefits from the drug war. Gibler also explains what the story of EPR guerrilla Andrés Tzompaxtle tells us about the continuum of state repression in Mexico.
