September 25 2015 — Estanislao Mendoza was one of dozens of people to go on a hunger strike camped out on Mexico City’s Zocalo.

His son, Miguel Angel Mendoza Zacarias, was one of 43 students detained and abducted the night of Sept. 26, 2014, by local police in the Mexican city of Iguala, in the southern state of Guerrero.
