Protesting Trump's Wall - February 20, 2019 Join host jim justice as she hears from people by the Skagit County Courthouse in Mount Vernon, Washington as they participate in the National Protest against Trump's Emergency Declaration so he could have money to finish his Southern Border wall. Ages ranged from toddlers to well-spoken 14+ year olds to the many retirees who have lined this intersection in the past, following the tradition set by peacenik Jerry Sommerseth. Included is a lengthy segment from the Rev Paul Moore, the new priest of St.Paul's Episcopal Church/ La Iglesia de la Resurrección in Mount Vernon and a heart spoken message from a Mexican immigrant who served several years in the US military. We close with Odessa's Freedom Trilogy, so listen to the end. The Skagit Valley Herald had an article and a couple of photos on Tues., Feb 19.
