    Veracruz never was the epicenter of Mexico’s drug war, but violence in the beachfront city has surged since 2011. In the last year and a half, 11 journalists from the area have died covering the violence. Manuel Monroy, a young crime reporter, is one of the few journalists who remains on the frontline.

    An ancient sport where players hit flaming balls with sticks in the dark of night is making a comeback in Mexico.

    After dusk, groups of kids run on a cement field with hockey sticks, chasing after a wooden ball set ablaze by gasoline in the town of Ohtenco, outside of Mexico City.

    “The fire ball is, well, it’s like magic,” said Omar Mendoza, one of the teenagers playing “Pelota Phurépecha,” as the sport is known. “It’s like the equilibrium of the universe; between good and evil. Evil is the darkness and good is the ball.”

    The youth movement #YoSoy132 shook-up the debate before Mexico's presidential elections in July. Now that the ballots have closed, #YoSoy132 is trying to find its footing in the nation's political scene.

    Students like Santino Bucio, a #YoSoy132 spokesman, still organize nationwide marches, accusing president-elect Enrique Peña Nieto of voter fraud and the nation's top media company, Televisa, of biased coverage that favored Nieto.

    "We live in a time when it's like the revolution is floating in the air,'' Bucio, who performs slam poetry at marches in Mexico City, says in this Storyhunter video. "We have to grab it with our hands. All the ideas are there for the taking and all you need is enough creativity to make it happen."

    Despite passionate protest from students like Bucio, some interviewed in the video say the movement is at risk of fading away and they must unite with traditional politicians to influence policy in a sustainable way. Students began the #YoSoy132 movement by using social media to organize massive protests against Nieto, without officially supporting any other political candidate.
