Waco Friends of Peace/Climate Protest at the Flores Swearing In of County Republican Chairman
The action was kept secret — even the media was not aware beforehand. The swearing-in event was held on the steps of the county courthouse. The protestors — six FOP members with a large banner and signs — assembled on the sidewalk about 30 feet away.
The protest addressed the following issues:
- Flores’ positive climate/environmental voting record is a horrendous 1%, the worst of Texas’ congressional delegation.
- Flores has refused to meet with constituents in a real town hall meeting.
- Flores is in total support of Trump’s destructive policies.
The Republicans attending the event seemed surprised and disturbed, although several came and shook our hands afterwards.
Our protest reached our goals, again demonstrating the power of a small group of dedicated citizens.
FOP/C thanks Cassie Smith of the Trib for covering this action.
