Activists in the United States plan to march in more than 50 cities today, demanding justice after the disappearance and presumed killing of 43 Mexican students in Mexico’s Guerrero state in September.

They join people who have been protesting in Mexico, demanding that President Pena Nieto resign from office for how he’s handled the case.
