By Morgan Chesky - bio | email

JACKSONVILLE, TX (KLTV) - There's no shortage of flags or signs outside the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce. More than 300 hundred people have gathered demanding change and telling the government to get their hands out of their pockets.

"We need to send the government a message that we will not stand for this," said one concerned citizen.

After a variety of speakers the crowd joined in a toast cups of tea in hand.

The majority of people were visibly frustrated but also relieved at the chance to have their voice heard.
