Apartment residents protest at landlord’s home

Monday, September 28, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

East Austin residents of Lakeview Apartments protested Saturday morning in front of the suburban home of their apartment complex’s owner in West Austin. After learning in June that their apartment building, at 2401 South Lakeshore Blvd., would soon be demolished, they received notices that they would need to move out by the end of September, according to a report in the Austin American-Statesman. With the hope of postponing a move-out date, the group of about 30 or so residents, along with supporters, took the matter straight to the landlord’s front door, where they left notes detailing their demands and then lined up in front of the home, chanting, “Que queremos? Justicia! Respeto! Respeto! Respeto nuestros derechos!” The landlord did not answer the door.
