Defend Our Hoodz - Defiende El Barrio - Austin
Austin city council has let loose their pigs on us for open season! They arrested 7 people tonight who were OUTSIDE doing nothing more than chanting. They obeyed orders and were still arrested.

THIS IS STATE REPRESSSION! They want to try and make an example out of us, because we have told them what the masses already know - THE CITY PROCESS IS SHAM!

We need our community to support us more than ever. Please continue to donate and join our struggle against the city and their developer masters!
