Mexican activism and the Internet: The case of Movimiento 5 de Junio

Description:
This talk analyzes the role of technology and the Internet as tools to promote social activism and policy change in Mexico. Movimiento 5 de Junio is a social movement that developed to address the tragedy at the ABC childcare facility in Hermosillo on June 5, 2009 where 49 babies died in a fire due to administrative negligence.
