281-534-7638On Monday, March 8, at 4:30 pm, President George W. Bush will be in Houston to raise funds for his re-election campaign. The event will be held at the Hilton Americas Hotel, 1600 Lamar, in the downtown area. Governor Rick Perry and Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn will also be present.
All of us should be there, too! A demonstration against Bush's policies of war, repression, exploitation, and racism will be held outside the Hilton Americas Hotel beginning at 4:30 pm. Everyone is welcome and invited to bring their families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. We envision this as a large street protest with lots of chanting, drumming, signs, and banners. This will be a spirited, legal, and peaceful event.
This event is being called by Progressive Workers Organizing Committee, International Socialist Organization, Axis of Logic, Socialist Labor Party--Houston, Houston Peace Forum, and CodePink. We invite all interested organizations to endorse this event.
This coming week, we will ask attorneys to help ensure our right to protest in the immediate vicinity of the Hotel on March 8. We will keep you informed about developments as we go along.
