Headline March 25, 2018/ '' 'MEXICO'S ''STUDENTS-CIRCUS'' MYSTERY' ''



THERE IS A BLEAK OBJECTIVE......................beneath the colours, laughter and magic of this  impromptu circus :

Persuade  'elementary school students' to share  any secrets  they might know about where the bodies of the missing are buried around their hometown.

The Search Brigade found seven bodies and 100 bones and other remains during its two-week  search in Guerrero.   

WITH A ZIP LINE, clowns and acrobats, the ''Missing Persons Search Brigade'', has turned this    gray basketball court into a circus in Esccuchapa, the violent Mexican state of Guerrero.

It is a place where kids grow-up trapped between the care-fair play of childhood and the brutality of  the world around them.

The village is  on the long list of places in Mexico that have been devastated by the wave of violence engulfing the country since the government declared war on drug cartels in 2006 and sent the army into the streets.

Since then nearly 250,000 people have been murdered. Another 40,000 are missing.

There is a bleak objective beneath the colours, laughter and magic of this impromptu circus : persuade elementary school children to share any secrets they might know about where the bodies of the missing are buried around their hometown.

Some of its clowns and acrobats are in reality relatives of the 'disappeared,' desperately seeking clues about what happened to their loved ones.

That means digging through the dirt to find mass graves, but also visiting churches and schools to plead for help from locals - including kids, in a part of the country where drug cartels are known to recruit children as lookouts and hitmen.

School children in villages like this are typically all top aware of the violence around them............says Maria Harreera one of the leaders of the search brigade.

In Escuchapa, for example there is a place known as Parrots' Pit where everyone says there are buried bodies.

Children are very receptive and have the information we're looking for,'' says Herrera, 70, who is searching for four missing sons.

''There are little people and they used to be informed . They see men with guns driving around in pick-up trucks, they see these bad people walking around and nobody tries to stop them,'' she told media.

Herrera said to help the children understand what it is like to have a loved one go missing.

''It feels like when your playmate takes your pencil without asking or a crayon that you need and you like very much. It makes you sad, right? she says.

The tragic-suffering in Mexico : Operational Research continues.

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Students, Professors and Teachers of  Mexico, and then the world.
