Flores Townhall Protest: Don't Fear Our Voices

This is a call to action from Waco Friends of Peace/Climate:

WHEN: Wednesday, April 19, from 4:30 pm until 7:00pm.

WHERE: 400 Austin Avenue, Waco, Tx 76701, sidewalk in front of the building.

WHY:  Waco Friends of Peace/Climate has protested outside Flores' Townhalls for several years now, focused on his functional climate change denial.  This year the protest becomes more urgent: the Presidency of Trump threatens our climate progress,  Flores supports Trump's climate agenda, and Flores is hiding from his constituents, doing only telephone townhalls this month.

LOGISTICS:  A 15-foot banner declaring "FLORES/TRUMP: CLIMATE INACTION KILLS"  will be provided. But please make and bring your own personal signs.  We want to focus on climate AND on Flores' unwillingness to face his constituents.  For example: "Flores: The Truth Has Found You," or "Flores: Don't Hide from Your Employers."

IMPORTANCE:  We need ALL members present:  this action serves also as our monthly meeting.  Everyone did a fantastic job at the DAPL protests recently.  This protest is just as important, as Republicans like Flores empower Trump to take his devastating steps on pipelines, the Clean Power Plan, emissions limits, funding, etc.

TIMING:  Rationale for our time period:  we wanted to cover office hours by the 4:30 start, allow those working to make it after 5pm, and just in case Flores does the Townhall from his office, be in place for the start at 6:30 pm.

WEATHER:  Conditions look fantastic: 80°C at 6 pm, with no chance for rain.

ENJOYMENT:  With the 7pm finish, we can get together for dinner afterwards as we have done at previous protests.  There are several restaurants in the vicinity.

QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS:  Please feel free to contact Alan Northcutt at anorthc@aol.com.

AS THE WACO GRASSROOTS CLIMATE ACTION NGO, IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT OUR CLIMATE AND BIOSPHERE FROM DONALD TRUMP AND BILL FLORES.  YOUR PRESENCE WEDNESDAY IS VITAL AND GREATLY APPRECIATED.
