Freedom Walk from Heritage Park, Taylor, Aug. 18 at noon
Activists will gather once again from San Antonio, Fort Worth, Austin, and surrounding areas. Beginning at Heritage Park (4th and Main) at noon, we will proceed south on Main over the railroad overpass (Main /Hwy 95). After crossing the I-95 overpass we’ll turn right onto Martin Luther King /Walnut, right on South Doak and left on Welch to the prison where we will hold a vigil and protest.
Antonio Diaz says “Our Freedom Walk will symbolize a “Freedom Bridge” that we are traversing in order to Free the Children. Dr. King reminded the people that everything done in Nazi Germany was legal. In this case, our government is violating International Law.” Our government is violating its own law as well; a 1993 Supreme Court decree requires ICE to keep children and parents together if possible and hold minors in a nonrestrictive setting.
