One of the most tragic results of the war on drugs in Mexico and the violence unleashed has been the alarming rise in disappearances. For a family who loses a loved one due to forced disappearances, there is a limbo of not knowing what happened to their son or daughter, or sister or brother, these families have faced this problem by organizing and by pressuring the authorities to bring results and to search for the disappeared in Mexico. Our guest on today's From Mexico, Santiago Corcuera, Founder of the Human Rights Programme of Iberoamerican University in Mexico City and former Chairman of the Comittee on Forced Disappearances of the United Nations.
