National Protest Against Prop 8
Luis and I went to the National Protest Against Prop 8 today in downtown Los Angeles. I’ve been pretty bummed after this passed in California. Ever since I was a little kid I always thought California was so cutting edge and modern when it came to how to treat people fairly. I’m sad to say I lost a little bit of that when Prop 8 was passed. I have regained some hope watching people come out to all the rallies I’ve been too. I thought there were tons of people at the Silverlake rally. It was nothing compared to the amount of people that were at the downtown LA one!!
Cities from all over the world had demonstrations in our honor, which was humbling and amazing. Luis and I rode the metro and it was free today because so many people showed up to show their support. We were packed like sardines in the subway, but it felt great. Everyone had their signs, and they were ready to protest! There were a couple of speakers and then we marched around downtown. I took some pictures and video. I have attached the pictures and embedded the videos from youtube. Enjoy and I hope we don’t loose steam! This will get overturned.
