At the time of this writing, it appears that the Mexican presidential candidate loathed by students with an increasing strong voice in Mexico, took back the Mexican Presidency after his PRI party has been on a hiatus from power. An increasingly growing population in Mexico and the U.S. have become part of the anti drug war movement and had hoped a president who opposed the drug war would win. It looks, however, that the status quo will continue.
There have been never ending large numbers of rampant election fraud accusations and one private group in Mexico set up a fraud reporting website, taking numerous complaints, and claimed they were simultaneously being hacked by those opposing their activism.
The U.S. led and funded drug war has taken nearly 60,000 lives in Mexico in recent years. Students, inspired by other people powered movements around the world, have been trying to bring about change to oust the U.S. led drug war puppets. Most such U.S. puppets are accused of being corrupt and the activists want them to go.
Student activists claim that the media monopoly in Mexico, Televisa to be precise, polished the image of the PRI. Televisa was once run by a PRI loyalist and Televisa was long seen as the propaganda arm of the PRI. When the son of Televisa's head took the reins, many hoped things would change and the son, Emilio Azcarraga Jean, who now heads the company made overtures upon taking the reins of the company that made think and wonder if the PRI push would continue. Some had hope for change. Today, many young students in Mexican society are trying to figure out how to make Televisa pay for what they perceive as Televisa taking sides in this election.
I highly recommend todays show on Democracy Now! DemocracyNow.Org for the inside scoops on the Mexican Presidential election and another VERY IMPORTANT story about the Police State in the U.S. and how it failed once again, where the Police entered a unarmed man's home, tazered him and shot him dead. It was all caught on tape. It's a sad testament to what our overzealous police state has become.
