Protest march and ride

Protest march and ride


On April 10, 1986, citizens on motorcycles lead a protest march in Austin. P-9 mobilized their members and the Austin community to take their fight for a living wage and safe working conditions to the national stage with the help of national media attention. Union activists joined their fight, coming from across the country to participate in picketing, demonstrations, and rallies.
