International Day of Protest
Protest the outrageous imprisonment of Nestora Salgado, a U.S./Mexican indigenous woman held in prison on trumped up charges. Salgado helped the poor in her Guerrero hometown to form a defense squad to protect themselves from narco-traffickers and their gangs. This angered corrupt politicians and mining companies who are colluding to drive the local people off their land.

August 21 is the one year anniversary of Nestora’s incarceration. The demonstration is sponsored by Bay Area Radical Women, Yo Soy 132, and the Freedom Socialist Party.
