DH: Van Os holds filibuster for liberty - March 4

Austin - Democratic nominee for Texas Attorney General David Van Os is holding a 24-hour "filibuster" for liberty on the south steps of the Texas State Capitol from 6 p.m. yesterday until 6 p.m. today, attended by several dozen Democrats from throughout the state including several other Democratic candidates for office in the November 2006 election.

Van Os, the main speaker, left, has invoked patriotic themes, including the Declaration of Independence of Texas from Mexico and the Declaration of Independence of the 13 original cononies from England. His talks have also included the Bill of Rights of both Texas and the United States Constitutions.

Other speakers Friday and Saturday have included Elliott Naishtat, second left, a Texas State Representative in the group of 51 Democratic state representatives who broke a quorum by leaving the state to prevent, temporarily, the Tom DeLay-inspired redistricting scheme prior to the 2004 election.

This story is being blogged from the south steps of the Texas State Capitol.
