UPDATE: The Facebook video has been removed but it is still on YouTube.

The following video below posted last night on Facebook has already gotten over 100,000 shares on Facebook. It shows students from Sonora, Mexico, protesting the missing students from Ayotzinapa teachers’ college in the Mexican state of Guerrero. The world is waking up to the news that the Mexican government has issued an arrest for the Iguala’s mayor José Luis Abarca and his wife. Nonetheless, there is still serious concern that the Mexican government is trying to scapegoat Abarca, and calls for Enrique Peña Nieto’s resignation continue.

Meanwhile, the video, even in Spanish, speaks for itself. The students in the video are presenting a dramatic interpretation of the missing students, calling out the names of those who have disappeared.

“We are students!”
“They killed us with bullets!”
“They ripped our eyes out!”
“Who are we?”
