Houston Chronicle covers the protest outside a Gulfton courthouse with evictions on the docket.
As the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic puts Houstonians at risk of losing their homes, the Houston Tenants Union and others protested in front of one of Harris County’s 16 eviction courts.
About 50 protesters spread out along the sidewalks outside of the Precinct 5, Place 1 courthouse in Gulfton. They held signs like “HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT,” “STOP EVICTIONS NOW” and “TENANT POWER.” They whooped at every car that honked its approval. In the parking lot behind them, a constable’s deputy watched in his car.
