A group of parents, relatives and supporters of 43 missing  students from Mexico held a rally Monday at Chicago’s Mexican Consulate seeking justice and accountability in the disappearance of college students who were abducted last September from the southern state of Guerrero — almost 2,000 miles from Chicago.

“Coalicion Caravana43 Chicago” organized the local visit as part of three groups that are traveling to cities around the country urging international pressure on Mexico’s government for more transparency about the disappearance.

The three Caravana43 groups will end their U.S. appearances in mid-April in Washington, D.C., and New York, where they plan to present their concerns to national and international legal bodies.
