Federación de Estudiantes de Guadalajara
The Federación de Estudiantes de Guadalajara (German Student Union of Guadalajara ), FEG for short , was an association of students from the Universidad de Guadalajara in Guadalajara , Jalisco , which was related to the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI).
The FEG was launched in 1948 and had its heyday in the 1960s and 1970s.
In the 1960s, the members of the FEG were closely intertwined with the PRI in Jalisco and played a key role in the party's political orientation. At times, their opponents accused the FEG of illegal and criminal activities, which contributed to their corresponding fear. A confirmation of the alleged danger emanating from the FEG can be found in the violent clashes of September 1970 with the Frente Estudiantil Revolucionario (FER), the revolutionary student front , in which two of the leaders of the FER were killed. According to press reports, some political opponents of the PRI and the FEG are said to have disappeared, especially in the late 1970s.
At that time, Raúl Padilla was president of the organization. After he distanced himself from the FEG in the late 1980s and founded a new student organization with the Federación de Estudiantes Universitarios (FEU), the influence of the FEG, which was defeated in the 1991 elections against the FEU and has not played a significant role since then, waned more plays.
In the late 1980s, the FEG maintained a professional football team in the Mexican second division . She got into this in 1987 by acquiring the second division license of the CD Progreso de Cocula. After two moderate years, the FEG rose at the end of the 1988/89 season in the third-class Segunda División 'B' , from which it was relegated again two years later.
