The day before the presidential election I was inspired by the #YoSoy132 movement to design a poster about the movement that was started by students who are against the corrupt PRI government and the media conglomerates that control the news in Mexico. It was the way that they took to the streets and demanded a better Mexico that is not controlled by a president who is in the pockets of the multi-national corporations that only think about themselves and the profits they stand to make. Now that the election has passed and the people are dealing fraud and recounts I wait to see what happens next, will the people have to concede that those in power can do what they want or will Mexico surprise us and something unexpected will happen.
