This afternoon social media from Mexico is sharing the latest from a national protest against the government’s privatization and reform plans, as well as President Enrique Peña Nieto. The Associated Press did publish a story today about Peña Nieto’s challenges, but so far very little about the protest is being reported in U.S. media. According to La Jornada, a tense clash between police and protesters occurred. It got violent, and the report also said that tear gas was used (UPDATE: the Jornada report has since been changed to say that no tear gas was used, although there were clashes).
Here is a Storify that we published earlier this afternoon. It contains real-time images and videos of the protests. According to the YouTube videos we have seen, YoSoy132 is saying that the clashes are not part of the student movement.
