Yo Soy #132 Bay Area Protests Electoral Fraud in Mexico

On Saturday, September 1, protesters in the Mission District in San Francisco came together in solidarity with the Yo Soy #132 movement, denouncing the election of Enrique Peña Nieto as the new President of Mexico.

Speakers rallied the crowd at 24th and Mission before proceeding to march through the streets to Dolores Park. Many of the signs and chants criticized Peña Nieto as well as his political party the PRI, which held power in Mexico for over 70 years. For many, the PRI is synonymous with narco-trafficking, corruption, massacres of indigenous people and assassinations of political activists, and they have once again returned to power via widespread electoral fraud. Yo Soy #132, started by university students in Mexico City, strongly rejects mass media outlets such as the television channels Televisa and TV Azteca, which serve as some of the PRI's primary mechanisms of control over the Mexican population.

Yo Soy #132 Bay Area's next event, which celebrates "La Primavera Mexicana" with food, art, and music, will take place on September 8 at 8 p.m. at the Centro Eric Quezada at 518 Valencia St. in San Francisco.

Protesting election fraud is good but they need not look so far away. There is no democracy in the USA and never has been. Currently, San Francisco has its third in a row fraudulently selected mayor of San Francisco. Willie Brown, Gavin Newsom and Ed Lee are all one election frauding gang and all proud Democrats. For more on their election fraud team, commonly done in all big cities by the Democratic Party, see:

We have another fraudulent presidential election pending. Just as in 2000 and 2004, we have no difference between Tweedledee and Tweedledum Democrat-Republicans perceived by the voters with their candidates each hovering around 45% in support (there is never any difference between these 2 parties) so the Republican Party is already committing election fraud on a national level by tampering with voter registrations. You can follow the whole story at

The entire election system is rigged in this backward country in favor of the twin parties of the capitalist class, the Democrat-Republicans, and that is election fraud by definition. If you want to put an end to election fraud and replace it with democratic workers' control of this society, you have to do labor organizing for a general strike to put an end to capitalism.
