STATE SCHOOL PROTEST RALLY -
MARCH 20, 2009

These photos, courtesy of the Corpus Christi Caller Times, were taken at a rally we organized in front of the Corpus Christi State School last Friday. We had representatives from CBCIL, Community Now! out of Austin, and the Coastal Bend-Texas Advocates protesting the "fight clubs" exposed at the school and the lack of remediation of this deplorable condition.

One of the immediate goals was to attempt to further journalistic education so that media do a better job of informing the public on the issues involved from a consumer/advocate standpoint. We had great media coverage. Although we were only 20 in number, that was pretty substantial for this community!
