Friends of Peace with help from peacemongers from Austin and Dallas staged a protest at the intersection of Valley Mills Drive and Waco Drive, Sunday, March 18th, starting at 1:30p.m.
The reception by motorists was overwhelmingly positive. A single counterprotestor appeared at the opposite corner; we engaged her in a respectful debate. The event helped bring the anniversary of the illegal occupation to the attention of Waco. Otherwise, it would have been scarcely noticed. Media coverage was excellent: 2 TV stations and a nice report in the Waco Tribune-Herald. Thanks to all 13 activists who gave of their valuable time to continue the struggle.
