Students do ICA in Mexico

Student protesters rallied last Friday at the headquarters of Televisa and took to the streets Wednesday evening, with some 10,000 gathering at the Stele of Light, a recently completed giant monument, before marching down the capital’s Paseo del la Reforma boulevard to the landmark Angel of Independence monument.
'It’s really something that students would start from scratch to organize this,' said Alejandro Mora Ruiz, an 18-year-old high school student.
'We’re fed up with media that hide real information,' echoed Berenice Marin, who was nearly drowned out by chants among students from at least 15 private and public universities in the capital. She said the movement was nonpartisan."

Organized online, no hierarchy.  Thousands take to the streets and wind up changing things.  YEAH!

On the other hand, people are pushing back. So, as usual, it's a struggle.
