Mexico's student-led protests

This is a four-minute video from a website called Storyhunter.tv about the student-led protests in Mexico prior to Sunday's presidential election. I found it interesting. The students use the Twitter hashtag #yosoy132 to communicate with each other. In my story from five weeks ago, I explain the origin of that hashtag. And the video below also explains it. These videos are clearly with a point of view negative to Enrique Pena Nieto, the presumptive winner of Sunday's election. Phone calls from world leaders have been pouring in to congratulate Pena Nieto on his victory, and he published this op-ed piece in the New York Times this morning to assuage U.S. fears that his party will go soft on crime gangs.

Serenity Escapes

if Pene Miento wrote that in the NY Times, then I wrote the Declaration of Independence AND the Gettysburg Address...and most of Stephen Douglas' and Cicero's famous speeches...
