    AMLO and Yo Soy 132 March Against Corruption

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Bossen says the ALMO and YO SOY 132 demonstrations were held in front of the Mexican presidential palace on the night of July 1. He says ALMO stands for a political party and its political leader, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, ran for Mexican presidential office and lost, and YO SOY 132 is a student and worker backed political group, both were protesting corruption in Mexican politics. 'The protests were impassioned like student groups and disgruntled workers usually are, however, they were very peaceful last night,' he says. He considers Mexico to be one of the most interesting countries because of its politics. 'The corruption is so wide spread it almost total freedom, for everyone. If you have money and influence you get what you want,' he says.
