In order to provide you with a response I need you to clarify your request. What protest or protests are your referencing? I will need date time and location if possible so I can send this to the appropriate place for responsive information. There are protests in Austin for various reasons and in order to provide a response I need to know which one you would like the information for. Work will not be done on this request until this info is clarified.
