Ayotzinapa Somos Todos: Calle 13 Takes A Stand During Latin Grammys 2014



Near the end of their performance at the 15th annual Latin Grammys Calle 13 took up the cause of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa in Mexico. "We are all Ayotzinapa,” said René “Residente” Pérez Joglar, wearing a shirt that read “Ayotzinapa is missing 43.”



“We can’t allow this to keep happening in these times. Viva Mexico,” Pérez Joglar said before leaving the stage.

Earlier that day they gave an interview to Fusion.net where they said the Mexican government should quit entirely.



The statements came on the same day protestors organized rallies in Mexico and throughout the world demanding that authorities find the 43 missing students that were taken from the rural teaching college.
