This 19 min. video documents a huge march organized by the Texas State Employees Union (TSEU-CWA 6186) to defend Texas public services and public employees. Workers came from across the state to join TSEU members. They included teachers, teamsters, steelworkers, communication workers, electrical workers, carpenters, ironworkers, pipefitters and other union members. The Texas Forward Coalition organized grassroots groups including the Texas Organizing Project (TOP), the Center for Public Policy Priorities, Code Pink, Advocacy Inc. — more than thirty organizations that participated in the march and rally. Members of TSEU went into the capitol and met with the legislators.
The video shows these activities and the resulting victories. It urges all to join together again on April 10, 2013. It features original music by TSEU member Ted James.
