1992 Republican Convention – ACT UP March in Houston

ACT UP was there again in 1992. People forget today what a mass presence street protest was in our movement in the late 80’s and 90’s. We pushed really hard to get the response we secured from the government — it did not just happen. This video captures the feel of the start of that March. But what it does not show is the police attacking the marchers later on in the march, after they had walked us into a cordoned parking area.
