Small Gathering in Hartford Against Florida Voting Irregularities -- Part 3
12 Nov 2000
The Connecticut State Capitol Building in Hartford was the site of a small demonstration against irregularities in Florida's recent Presidential vote. Approximately fifteen people gathered on a cold, overcast New England afternoon, holding signs and exchanging views. The event took place at 1pm on Saturday, November 11, 2000.
Robyn Kermes of Mansfield (in yellow jacket in photo) was moved to participate in this rally by what she described as "the disturbing pattern of disenfranchisement of Black and Hispanic voters in Florida." Ms. Kermes has been communicating about these issues with friends in that state, including a Methodist minister who in the past week has attended Florida church rallies about the election irregularities. Ms. Kermes she wanted to "clear up these problems" of discrimination against certain groups of people trying to vote, and added that she did not want to see anyone win the Presidency fraudulently.
