El Salvador Legal Authorities
On March 9th Victor Rodriguez ate his ballot as a form of art and protest for the amount of money spent in this year's electoral campaigns as well as other political reasons. It was a peaceful manifestation where no one was hurt. The event made national headlines and now he is looking to serve up to 6 years in jail! Victor is a national artist who just wanted his voice heard and was not aware of the legal implications. In El Salvador it is illegal to eat your ballot as it is considered electoral fraud, but Victor had no intention of committing any type of fraud and was only using his basic human right of free speech. Please help us gather enough signatures of people who believe in the freedom of speech, specially for young people!
