Marches All ACross Texas!

By Jim Lane

On April 9 and 10, Texas joins the rest of the nation in activities opposing congressional proposals that would have the effect of splitting the working class and worsening everybody's wages and working conditions. In several Texas cities, unions are playing leading roles. In Dallas, major African-American political figures, including State Senator Royce West and several City Councilpersons, held a press conference and declared that everybody should join the Latinos in this effort!

The Dallas march organizers asked that no foreign flags be displayed, and they bought 14,000 American flags to give out! Dallas and several other cities have asked marchers to wear "white for peace."

In Dallas on April 9

Meet at Catedral Guadalupe on Ross Avenue at noon, March through the city to City Hall on Young

In Dallas on April 10: Consumer boycott. Spend "not one penny!"

In El Paso on April 10
Gather at 12:30 PM at the Chamizal National Memorial Park

Apr 10 in San Antonio

What Next?

During and after the march, participants should look for ways to form ongoing groups and coalitions. Set other actions and meetings. This page will try to help publicize. Millions of people are coming to the realization that this Administration is turning more and more viciously against us. As much as we can, we need to help new activists organize to be effective in withstanding the onslaught.
