Jumbotron prompts Alamo standoff between anti-abortion activists, city officials

Jumbotron prompts Alamo standoff between anti-abortion activists, city officials

San Antonio police and city officials blocked anti-abortion activists Wednesday from bringing a projection screen onto Alamo Plaza to display graphic images of late-term abortions.


But, city officials told the activists that using the "Jumbotron" would violate an ordinance banning digital signs on historic city property, including the plaza near the Alamo.


"I informed them that we would not permit that to happen, but that they were more than welcome to distribute any literature or any other information that they wanted to put out and we'd be more than happy to help them accomplish that," McManus told reporters.

Harrington said the group will "consider all legal remedies" against the city and will consider returning to the city at a later time. He alleged city officials were discriminating against his group based on their plans to project images of late-term abortions.

"I can tell you this: we're not going to go away, this isn't the end of this," Harrington said.
