Peña Nieto, the Dinosaur

In Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, one Halloween partygoer used his costume to make a strong political statement against the return of the PRI to Mexico’s top office.

Here are some English-language articles:

The Kingpins - Lengthy but pretty comprehensive article that lays out the relationship between the PRI, Enrique Pena Nieto, and the narcowar, as well as the influence drug violence has had upon Mexican voters.

Mexico’s Election: A Vote For Peace, A Plan For War - Offers some background regarding the origin of #yosoy132 and American interference in the elections.

Mexico’s Youth Uprising - Written just before the elections, capturing the mood at that time.

Raped, Beaten, Never Forgotten - Information about the widespread sexual assault of women in San Salvador Atenco, which occurred under Ernesto Pena Nieto’s watch, and is one of the biggest contributors to outrage against him.

Reports of gift card payments… - Concerning the gift cards to Mexican supermarket chain Soriana, which were used to buy votes for the PRI, and the origin of the the numerous Soriana references in the protests.

(I do not claim that the information in these articles is 100% accurate or free from contention, but they should give a sufficient understanding of the factors at play here.)

omg one of my old friends since middle school is dating a guy who works for the PRI and she keeps making butthurt posts about the fact that people don’t like corrupt, vote-buying institutions that had single-party rule of their nation for seven decades coming back into power. FOR SOME CRAZY REASON THEY’RE UPSET ABOUT THIS. Today she posts this video as a defense.

“Even if this is the worst version of the PRI that comes back, the institutions that Mexicans have built are solid enough to contain that PRI,” said Krauze from El Zócalo just a few hours ahead of voting.

gurl, that is not a positive review
