Civil society hacks political institutions
Mexico has a vibrant civil society that influences politics through a ethics and aesthetics. The state and traditional parties exercise a natural resistance to this movement.
In 2012, the spontaneous #yosoy132 movement began in a university where students demonstrated against the candidate from the party with a 75 year hold on power, PRI, Peña Nieto. After being rejected by the students, he defended himself saying that their movement was coordinated by the opposition. The students organized an online campaign showing their faces and university IDs, proving that they were independent.
This movement took thousands of people to the streets against the PRI candidacy and mobilized the entire country. It also woke young people up to more active political participation. Even though they lost at the polls and Peña Nieto was elected in 2012, this movement injected energy and allowed for the passage of a political reform that provided for independent candidacies, among other things.
The new instrument is a marker in a Mexican society that is betting on this to renew politics in the country. The symbol of this hope can be found in election of the first independent state representative in the country, Pedro Kumamoto and in the work of his Wikipolítica collective. In 2018, the EZLN (Zapatista Army of National Liberation) tried to run, for the first time in history, an independent indigenous presidential candidate.
