Truthdig: “Mexico’s Yo Soy 132 Sings Its Own Songs”

June 5, 2012 – Truthdig has a cool article out about the Yo Soy 132 student movement going on in Mexico, where journalist Carmen Aristegui asked the students to create a soundtrack for the marches. Some of the songs that got "Tweeted" with her hashtag "#CancionesParaMarchar" were Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" but also many local Mexican artists were voted for also. Check out the article and what the soundtrack turned out to be at Truthdig.com here. For more information on Yo Soy 132 check out their Wiki articile here, and if you are bi-lingual you can check out their website here.
