Our statement will also ask the Barrio and the Bulldog to join with us in wanting to keep the Skyways open.

WHO: ADAPT MN; People with Disabilities, Seniors and Residents of the Downtown St. Paul Community

WHAT: Members of ADAPT MN and allies will be picketing and leafleting.

WHERE: In front of the Barrio-235 Sixth St E- St. Paul and the Bulldog

We need to let the owner of the building and the City of St Paul know we will NOT tolerate this!

We need full access to the Skyways!
