Here’s how once group of activists responded to the threat of property confiscation…
According to the group “Empower Texans“:
“The City of Weatherford was prepared to rush through involuntary annexations of over 50 properties in the Zion Hill area. City council members had hoped to conclude the process quickly, before a new state law takes effect December 1 that will require certain cities to get owners’ approval before annexing their property.”
Apparently the city could take private land without the owner’s permission. But citizens pushed back by organizing to change the law. It is only through the actions of ordinary citizens like these who speak up about government injustices, will those injustices be remediated.
