Collected at Yo Soy #132 protest. Yo Soy #132 is a student-led movement that is critical of Mexican media and its favorable coverage of then presidental candidate Enrique Peña Nieto. The movement grew following a May 2012 campaign visit to the Ibero-American University in Monterrey. Peña Nieto's visit to the campus was received badly; however, media coverage covered his visit as a success. In response to untruthful media coverage of the event, 132 Ibero-American University students who were present at event took to social media to provide accurate testimonies, which then spurred an on-going nation-wide movement.
