#YoSoy132: Student Uprising in Mexico

YoSoy132 is a Mexican Students Movement centered around the democratization of the Mexican elected president Enrique Peña Nieto and his supported media.

Until May 11th it seemed like Enrique Peña Nieto was going to win the elections easily. There had already been one or two setbacks for him. First, at the Guadalajara International Book Fair in December last year, he was asked what were the three most important books in his life, and he couldn’t name one. He is just such a complete airhead, an ignoramus. This is the guy who’s going to be the next president of Mexico!

 

The Blog Class War University has an outstanding story about the history of this movement under the name: Student-led Uprising in Mexico – An interview with Patrick Cuninghame (Professor, Mexico City),
