The beheadings and the drug problems are DIRECTLY related to corruption in our government. We are never going to get rid of the drug problem with a
corrupt government, that's part of the reason why people finally decided to protest.
For those saying that there really isn't a media blackout: This is apparently one of the BIGGEST protests EVER! in the history of Mexico, you would
think by now the world would've heard about it since it has been going for about 10 days (it started right after the presidential elections took place
on July 1st).
I live in Canada and none of my friends, except for Mexican ones, had heard about it until I mentioned it.
I was born and raised in Mexico, I lived there until I was 21, my facebook news feed is FULL with posts about the protests. Social networks are the
medium by which people are getting organized to protest, they are trying REALLY hard to keep it a peaceful protest because there have been several
attempts by people pretending to be part of the movement to incite people to do things that would give the government and the media a chance to create
false reports about the protester's "bad behaviour" and defer the attention from the real issue. We all know how they play that game.
I must say I am ecstatic to see this is happening.
