Report on the San Francisco Protest Against Mexico Vote Fraud

Two militants of the Workers International League intervened at a demonstration in protest of the vote fraud in Mexico that has kept Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador from rightfully assuming the Presidency. The demonstration was held in front of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) 24th and Mission Street station in San Francisco’s mainly Latino Mission District. The hastily called demonstration attracted about 50 individuals and several organizations including the San Francisco supporters of the FMLN (Frente Farabundo Martí para la Liberación Nacional of El Salvador) and the ANSWER Coalition. The WIL comrades passed out hundreds of Spanish-language fliers discussing the need for a general strike in Mexico for a recount. In addition Socialist Appeal was offered for sale. The fliers were rapidly distributed by the two English-speaking comrades, which was a testament to the interest sparked by the voter fraud in Mexico in the largely working class Hispanic community center.
