SAN ANTONIO -- The controversy surrounding the four-year, $450 million Alamo renovation project took another turn Friday, as the nonprofit group This is Texas Freedom Force and other demonstrators from across the state gathered in front of the 60-foot cenotaph in hopes of getting lawmakers’ attention.

the obvious question - for those claiming :
"it cannot be moved without destroying it "

You do not understand Texans and our love for our history. I work with historic properties for a living, and despite how rabid i am i still find that im second guessed quite a bit in regards to my decisions relating to said properties.
Added to that....open carry of rifles is legal here. Its not uncommon to see in the area around the Alamo.
All that said....the traffic around the Houston St area and Alamo itself isnt really that bad. Not sure what there is to gain from this proposed move.

Jesus people. I live in MI and already knew this was planned.
since you know so much, was it supposed to go back to the same location? Are you against the protesters who just want the people to have a say in what happens?
