March for an Athens Civil Rights Committee [VIDEO]

On October 4, 2016, the Athens Anti-Discrimination movement marched from the UGA Arch to City Hall where we started singing on the steps outside. We could be heard inside where the monthly Mayor and Commission voting meeting was taking place. Demonstrators continued inside the building and refused to be quiet until Mayor Denson put the Bar Admittance Ordinance back on the agenda for November.

Speakers indicated their thanks, but also that this is not enough. They demanded a more inclusive ordinance and also the creation of an Athens Civil Rights Committee.

Join us on November 1 at 6pm at City Hall. At 7pm, we will attend the Mayor and Commission meeting to demand the creation of a Civil Rights Committee. [youtube www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WnC3DpYe04&w=700&h=500] Facebooktwitterby feather
