Bush protestors stage march to City Hall

Bush protestors stage march to City Hall
By ERIC BERGER
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

They marched. They yelled. And they carried signs with such slogans as: "Bush lied, thousands died."

Days after the inauguration of President Bush for a second term, more than 100 protesters marched in downtown Houston to let the world know that even on Bush's home turf some were resisting his administration.

Perhaps Aswad Walker, an instructor in the University of Houston African American Studies program and pastor of Houston's Shrine of the Black Madonna, best summed up the feelings of the angry protestors:

"We've got some joker who stole the White House two times who is now trying to tell us how to live our lives."

Social change was the order of the day: ending the war in Iraq, stopping racial intolerance, repealing the Patriot Act, defending women's reproductive rights and ending environmental harm were all among the calls.

The march, organized by a coalition of groups including the Harris County Green Party, Progressive Workers Organizing Committee and Latinos Por La Paz, went from Market Square to City Hall.

Along the way they were needled by about a dozen Bush supporters affiliated with a group called Protest Warrior, which counters left-thinking gatherings.

"Most of us are not protestors by nature," said Julie Braverman, a Sugar Land resident who was taking a short break from telling the protestors that Saddam Hussein killed 3 million of his own people.

"So all of this seems a little ludicrous to us. But we just feel like we can't let them get away with it."

Shortly afterward the protest had its only mildly violent moment. A line of the protestors began marching toward the Bush supporters, backing them into the street and oncoming traffic. Horns honked as the traffic stopped. Soon Houston police arrived and the march proceeded peacefully.

If the march was peaceful, the rhetoric was much more spirited.

"Bush was never, never supposed to occupy the presidency," said Cristobal Hinojosa, of the group Mexicanos en Accion. "But he's occupying the presidency just like the troops are occupying Iraq -- with no reason. We are not going to bend our heads to power. We are going to continue to fight for what is right."

Among the rallyers were half a dozen young men and women dressed in black. They carried a banner stating: "Whoever they vote for, we are ungovernable."

You are a liar. This is not Eric Bergers article, and none of the normal people carried a sign that said anything like that. I know no one reads your blog, so it doesn't matter what you write, but I'm calling you on being full of shit. I will also direct Eric Berger's attention to yours and the guerrilla news network's rewrite of his article. They may or may not do anything, but I know they don't take copyright infringement lightly.

On a personal note, I was there and witnessed the violence of you so called pacifists - pushing people into traffic because you don't like their views. And despite all of your hypocrisy, you are all quite "governable."

UoP online targets mature adults who have been in the work force for at least five years. The majority of UoP online students have been career oriented for some time. By designing their online classes so that they don’t require meetings at set times, UoP online helps busy individuals advance their educations.

Hello ##NAME##, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a postsuch as yours with a different topic completely to what I was looking for. It often ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I tend to have a soft spot for blogs related to writing articles and /or sites that have a central theme around writing articles type items.

Once again, thank you, hope you don't mind if I visit again sometime :-)

I seem to be a dying breed on the internet. I still feel that article writing and article marketing are in their infancy - there is much more benefit to be derived from article writing. None of my web sites have suffered from the alleged, duplicate content filter or penalty - very much the opposite. The Article Writing blog is on course to become the number one source of information on article writing and marketing.
