More Prop 8 Protests Coming

Prop 8 protests are planned for many California locations tonight and over the weekend. In San Diego:
Friday evening at 9pm community activists are urged to meet at Laurel & Sixth, then the group will walk to City Hall. Also, on Saturday at noon, gather at First & University in Hillcrest and march to 30th & University in North Park.
Andy Towle has a great roundup of other locations and is adding to the list through the day.

Pam Spaulding notes
a Chicago protest against Focus of The Family's James Dobson.
In Chicago there will be a demonstration on Saturday to protest Prop 8 leader James Dobson's visit to receive his Museum of Broadcasting award. Focus on the Family gave $800,000 to bankroll Prop 8.
"In California we saw the very direct effect that anti-gay hate can have on the life choices available, or unavailable, to the gay community," said Wayne Besen, Executive Director of Truth Wins Out. "Dobson put his media empire and $150 million annual budget at the service of defeating equal rights by passing California's Proposition 8, removing equal marriage rights for same-sex couples."
The action will be held at 5:30 PM, Saturday, November 8 outside of the Renaissance Chicago Hotel, 1 W. Wacker Drive (corner of Wacker & State). For information about Saturday night's protest, contact the Gay Liberation Network at 773-209-1187 or
