UPDATE: Organizer Stefania Thomas has posted on the message board referenced below that "...there will be a march in the area as well as an awesome rally with great speakers and live music." I'll take that.
As of this moment, 48 hours before it starts, the Climate March will take place at Clinton Park, just outside Loop 610 in the northeastern quadrant, near the Port of Houston. The location was changed from Charles H. Milby Park, just outside the Loop in the southeastern quadrant. Before that, the plan was to hold it in Hartman Park, also southeast of the Loop, in the Manchester district within sight of the Valero refinery.
I'm not the only climate-concerned individual in these parts who's a bit flummoxed by the changes in venue. Other participants have expressed exasperation over them on the Facebook event and on a message board. Since Manchester is the focus of T.E.J.A.S. and its Toxic Tours, I was all in favor of holding a march and rally there. These protests can't always take place in the more affluent parts of town; gathering in frontline communities makes it easier to unite with the people most directly affected by refineries and chemical plants. Plus, it will benefit folks from the Heights, Greater Montrose, West U, Bellaire, etc., to see where and how their fellow Houstonites live along Refinery Row.
