One more protest


There will be one more demonstration today in front of the Skelly Building, 4th & Boulder, 11:30 - 12:30.

About 30 protesters showed up last week, collecting signatures on the petition, asking the Whirled's publisher to consider the alternatives. In all, about 700 signatures were presented to the Whirled. But the Whirled is reportedly unwilling to sell the building.

Still, the protests are raising awareness that another piece of cityscape is about to vanish, and various civic groups are working on ways to protect downtown in the future. And what's more, the protests have brought together some great people concerned about downtown and urban design, built some friendships and alliances for the future, and revealed some hitherto hidden leadership skills in the folks who put these protests together.
