No worries, you guys should save your energies for when SCOTUS repeals Roe.

We had about 5,000 show up, by my estimate. People would spontaneously break out in patches of "Fuck you, Greg!" shouts in between organized chants of "Vote Abbott out!". It was a very peaceful demonstration, probably the biggest political protest this city has seen in years (our ratio of political activism to population size is probably the lowest in the country, due to poorness). We all fully expect to have to turn out again.

Hey, at least it was better than when I went downtown to protest gov't surveillance after the Snowden revelations and I was one of like 13 people total.
