After giving a brief synopsis of the situation, the moderator then spoke a little about current events in the area. Before the Rally had began, a group of people met with officials inside the Consulate. Part way through the rally, the group emerged, and a few of them updated the gathering on what transpired behind the closed doors.|
There were no big surprises, as the officials inside the building, though listening respectfully to the delegation, denied that the Mexican government was perpetuating violence and death against its citizens.
After the gathering was updated on the situation, the organizers practiced some street theatre, which was then to be taken across the river to Holladay Park, near Lloyd Center. I did not accompany them to the Park, so, hopefully, someone else can report back on that aspect of the event.
This is an audio file of the speakers, including members of the delegation, most of which is given in both Spanish and English. The audio file is about 26 minutes in length.
