In lees of 15 days Mexico will held its presidential elections and define a new direction toward it politic system.
The most important issue in the campaign had noose been the war on drugs as the central problem because it has been replaced by how the private media creates the identities that will create the vote intention.
Mexico has undergone a complex transformation by which experience for the first time a democratic life with many outstanding issues pendant, such as the lack of public media depending on private actors such as Televisa and TV Azteca to communicate both candidates and governments policies programs.
This is where the movement #Yosoy132 stand for. First it should be noted that # Yosoy132 is not within the new global movements for democratic change as # OccupyLondon, # OccupyWallSt or # 15m because these movements are focusing their efforts in exposing the commodification of the citizenship for the benefit of bankers and financial actors. The agenda of these movements has been the need to rethink the welfare state against the markets dictatorship.
#Yosoy132 as a political movement will suffer in June 1º, a substantial transformation because if the leading predicting surveys become true, AMLO will lose and the left will again bee in the need to rethink their actions as a strong opposition. And many people in the Aztec country wonders how this movement will act if the outcome is not favorable to them because the exercise of the construction of illegitimacy that had been created by them as the presidency of Enrique Peña Nieto identified as a product of the media will create barriers to social communication and will open old wounds as the 2006.
The particular conflict proposed by the #132 is an anti-prisita feeling adding a growing distrust in traditional media, thus questioning the hegemony of Televisa and TV Azteca as creators of social realities.
The concept of these two Networks as veto players has weakened the idea of class struggle, although central cleavage in the book of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador “The Mafia and Politics 2012.”. AMLO has made the smartest move we could done in all his campaign thanks to the #132 nature and taking the inclusion of these elites into his movement, created a bast alliance of proletarian and young bourgeois.
The #132 concept of hegemony is certainly very interesting because consciously or unconsciously give a living example of the concept which uses Antonio Gramsci. as a result of a broad alliance (Telvisa-EPN-TV Azteca) to impose a logic to the rest of society. .
The role of TV Azteca as Telvisa as political institutions recognition open a new debate on the need to create a public media and a new information regulation.
The central question about the movement and to know how far their impact after the elections will be lies in the role of partnerships within the own # 132 and in the crystallization of a own political program not partisan that will be leaving the actual alliance with the PRD. Here with the inclusion of other sectors of Mexican society such as the indigenous communities will be crucial to strengthen not only the role of the left but also the role of a real national movements which could give it that final push to play the role of opposition from the left.
The alteration made by the # Yosoy132 of under what conditions has been the dispute of political negotiation during this campaign will be essential to understand how the administration of Peña will work. If to get the legitimacy Felipe Calderon had to attack drug trafficking EPN what policy will adopt? and this response will be the cornerstone of the PRI’s return to the federal institutions and determine if they could come back at the lost States.
The interpretation of the violence of them (demonstrations) against the violence of others (disinformation) delineate the capabilities of both to build majorities and to solve the structural problems facing Mexico today.
