Mexico's Reborn Youth Movement is Spreading Internationally

By: Published by Frontera NorteSur



In less than three months the Mexican youth movement #Yo Soy 132 (I am 132) has undergone a remarkable evolution. Beginning as a protest against Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto at the privately-run Ibero-American University in Mexico City, on May 11, the movement has since grown by leaps and bounds. 

From the get-go the 132 Movement linked issues -- protesting the Televisa network's long-running promotion of Peña Nieto, and questioning the former governor and now virtual president-elect's role in the repression of protestors at San Salvador Atenco in 2006, an event in which dozens of female detainees were raped or sexually molested.
