KPBS has released their coverage of the protest at the San Diego Mexican Consulate on Monday. The entire article is worth reading, but the end is especially powerful.
Felix Garcia, a San Diego resident in his 60s who strummed on his guitar and song revolution-era songs outside of the consulate, hadn’t eaten in more than three days.
“I feel weak and hungry, but my conviction is stronger,” he said.
Garcia said he looks up to Salgado because of her defense of indigenous communities in Guerrero, one of Mexico’s poorest states.
“She represents resistance. Liberty. Freedom,” he said.
