An International Tragedy: Luis Gongora Pat Press Conference from Yucatan

EDITOR'S NOTE: An interpreter did English to Spanish translation during the press conference.  The audience questions (all of which were in Spanish), at the end, were translated to Attorney Pointer for his responses.  This is a transcript of attorney Pointer's statement and answers to questions by the attendees.  The press conference included words from Luis Gongora's family and presentation of a quilt to the family to show our love and solidarity towards them. Further coverage of this from Poor Magazine is forthcoming.
