Local toll road activist Terri Hall, the Spring Branch home schooling mom who's campaign against toll roads made her WOAI's San Antonian of the Year for 2007, is taking her populist campaign nationwide.

Hall is among the speakers for Saturday's 'Freedom March,' in Washington DC, organized by supporters of former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, and designed to keep alive his message of smaller government and vigilance against encroaching government power.
"They wanted someone to speak about the Trans Texas Corridor, and what's happening here, and the eminent domain abuses, and how all these toll roads are tied to corporate sweetheart deals," Hall said.

She says she will address the group from the steps of the U.S. Capitol following a march through Washington.

Hall's group, Texans Uniting fro Reform and Freedom, has been a major advocate against toll roads across Texas, and has been instrumental in holding the Texas Department of Transportation and other state agencies accountable.

She says many of the speakers will talk about different things, but all share one basic point of view.

"Concern about losing our freedoms and liberties, concerns about the 'Real IF law, and some of the surveillance measures that we've been seeing," she said.

Paul, who is a southeast Texas Congressman, started the Freedom March when he withdrew from the presidential race earlier this year. The idea is to mobilize a continuing base of voters in support of his smaller government and anti war ideals.
