The Mexican youth movement #YoSoy132 shook up the debate before the country's presidential elections in July. Now that the ballots have closed, #YoSoy132 is trying to find its footing in the nation's political scene.
Weeks after Mexico's presidential elections, thousands of people have turned out to protest the declared winner, Enrique Peña Nieto, and the imminent return to power of the party that ruled Mexico for more than seven decades.
Mexican students that organized massive protests against the country's biggest broadcaster earlier this month may not have seen their favored candidate win, but they did spotlight how online media can seize the political agenda in a country with little media competition.
Until a few months ago, two out of every ten Mexican university students paid little attention to politics. The man who woke them up is presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto from the former ruling Partido Revolucionario Institucional.
Powerful Mexican elites are set on crowning their favored candidate as the next President: Enrique Peña Nieto of the PRI party. The Yo Soy 132 movement has risen to challenge Peña Nieto and what he represents.
