Austin responds to the war!
- The Austin American-Statesman reports that a mass demonstration/walkout of 1000 students culminated in a sitdown traffic shutdown on The Drag (Guadalupe St.). No reports yet on arrests made (Austin IMC reports that 300 participated in the sitdown, no arrests made yet but they expect that to happen soon.
More details will likely be posted at Austin.Indymedia.org.
- Also in Austin last night, according to an Austin.Indymedia.org report an anti-war protestor was savagely beaten by UT police officers.
If you’re in Austin and involved in today’s peace actions, please be careful and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. If the cops beat you, don’t respond back with violence. That lets them win. Be strong for peace!
