A Call was put out for people to keep Mexican consulates and embassies all over the world from opening on Monday morning, October 30th. List In SF, protesters met at the the Mexican Consulate at 532 Folsom St. at 6:45am ( Photos: 1 | 2 | Video), to tell the government of Mexico "that we will not allow this savage attack on our brothers and sisters in Oaxaca to be taking place and have business go on as usual." People came together again at 4pm. People also gathered at the Mexican Consulate in San Jose (540 North First St.) at 7am on Monday morning. There was an electronic blockade of Mexican Embassy and Consulate websites on Monday. A film screening that will be a benefit for the Rebelión Popular will take place at Station 40 (3030b 16th St. in SF) on Wednesday night, November 1st, at 7pm.
