A group of Democrats protested Secretary of State Rex Tillerson outside of the US embassy in Mexico City. They organized a demonstration against Tillerson, who arrived in the city on Wednesday.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Advertising for the demonstration on The Action Network, a website for left-wing activists, says that “Democrats Abroad Mexico and other progressive organizations like the Women’s March and Bridges to Understanding have created a petition” that demands Tillerson “meet with U.S. citizens who hold opposing views while he visits Mexico City to talk with Mexican government officials.”
The organizers of the protest are criticizing President Trump’s rhetoric and promise to renegotiate NAFTA saying:
“The U.S. and Mexico are deeply connected economies and it is in the interest of the United States to strengthen the regional production network to boost manufacturing employment in the U.S. and ensure the long-run competitiveness of manufacturing in the region.”
The Mexico chapter of Democrats Abroad also threatens:
“If we are not given a meeting with Secretary Tillerson we will deliver a letter to the U. S. Embassy at 2 pm on Thursday, February 23, and will hold a quiet and respectful demonstration on the public space in front of the embassy. Mark your calendar and be ready to to attend on a moment’s notice,” protesters are instructed.”
There are more than 1 million US citizens living in Mexico, many of which have been very vocal about their disapproval of President Trump, but delivering a letter to the embassy? Whoa, big accomplishment there.
