A date to mark in your calenders: May 25th: End of WALK4LIFE in TX
Dear Connie and Susanne,
after talking with Andre, we have thought to plan the end of the Walk as follows. Andre will plan his route from where he will be to the Governor Mansion in Austin and will let us know the details so those who will want to walk with him for the last miles will be able to find him. Meeting place (ending place of the walk) will be the Governor Mansion in the centre of Austin- address: corner between Eleventh and Colorado St. Time: time of meeting - between 3 and 4 pm.
We know that the Governor has temporarily moved to another place but the ending of the Walk there, to the historic home of the Texas Governor is something symbolic.
The idea is that after getting there, we can take our cars and go to where the Governor is living now, which is at 8113 Hickory Creek Drive (about 30 minutes far from the centre of Austin). Once there we will protest with signs and asking the Governor to talk to us. Hopefully we'll get media to cover this.
Also i think we should try to gather as more people as possible to join us at both the places.
Also, we should spread the word about organizing a protest in front of the State Capitol in Austin for the following day (26th May)... with signs and petitions.
Just wanted to update you on this.
