JOIN THE LOS ANGELES PROTEST AGAINST PROP 8
TONIGHT IN LA!!!
This Saturday, November 8, 6pm
Gather at Sunset Junction in Silver Lake
Corner of Sunset Blvd. & Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles 90029
Momentum is building for Saturday's important emergency demonstration. Thousands of people over the past few days have come out in the streets of Los Angeles to protest the passage of Prop. 8. All progressive people who stand for equality and against discrimination should join us this Saturday to continue the struggle. The well-funded right-wing campaign of bigotry is trying to push millions of LGBT people back into the closet. We can't let this happen.
At Saturday's protest, there will be speakers, music, chanting, colorful signs and a march. Speakers include Robin Tyler and Diane Olson, the first LGBT couple to marry in California. Students, workers, community activists, professionals, mothers, families, celebrities and so many others are coming from all over Southern California for this important action. From Santa Barbara to Barstow; from Palm Springs to Long Beach; from Orange County and throughout the L.A. area, the Silver Lake action will be an opportunity for the LGBT and its allies to speak as a united voice for equal rights. Spread the word to as many people as you can before the protest.
Everyone should have the right to marry. The LGBT movement and its allies won same-sex marriage rights and only a militant movement will ultimately prevail. Gay or straight, documented or undocumented; Black, Latino, Asian, Arab or white—Prop. 8 is a slap in the face of equality for everyone. Let's unite and fight back! An injury to one is an injury to all!
