Democrats Plan Protest Against Conservative Group and Gov. Perry
Governor Rick Perry is scheduled to attend the grand opening of the new King Street Patriots headquarters today and some democrats are gearing up for a protest.
The King Street Patriots say their mission is to prevent voter fraud, however, some accused the group of using tactics that were along the lines of voter intimidation and harassment in November 2010.
Here’s the information below that was sent to me regarding tonight’s protest in Houston:
FIRST, THE PROTEST/RALLY IS ON!!!
Try to be there by 6:30 p.m. on Monday (see map & address below).
Please note that the location is INSIDE THE LOOP just off of Hempstead Highway. That is a road that is different than Hwy 290. The attached map makes it appear that the KSP Headquarters is right at the corner of Wynnwood and Hempstead Hwy, but it’s actually about a block down on Wynwood on the left in a nondescript warehouse/office complex. Pretty drab setup, actually.
Bring FUNNY but NOT VULGAR SIGNS and PLEASE WEAR RED.
Please forward this to everyone on your email lists who would like to come.
We’re working with CID and HPD Sp Ops to make this go smoothly.
Let’s make some noise Harris County Dems!
The odious King Street Patriots are having the grand opening of their brand new headquarters up on 290 just south of I-610 ( 7232 Wynnwood Lane) on Monday, May 16, 2011. It’s from 7-9 p.m.
RICK PERRY is coming to the event. We should welcome them and Gov. Goodhair with hundreds or thousands of protesters. Here’s a map to the location: MAP
Here’s a blog post about the opening. http://www.kingstreetpatriots.org/ksp-grand-opening-celebration
I am writing to you and others to try to get this organized. This would be a great show of strength for Harris County Democrats and their allies. We need union members, hispanics (everyone who marched in Bellaire on May 1!), African-Americans, and all other Democrats to come out and protest this awful, discriminatory group, and the Governor who supports their goals. We need signs and bullhorns!
What do you say? Can we get an army of protestors out there? I say, Yes we can!
