Yo Soy 132: The Mexican Spring

At a private university in Mexico City, students protested a talk by presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto on May 11, and were accused of being agitators for hire by media outlets. One hundred and thirty one of the students involved posted videos identifying themselves as genuine students and sparked a series of large protests against media influence on elections and other political irregularities. We speak to journalist Luisa Ortiz Perez about Yo Soy 132’s off-campus impact.
