Prop 8 Protest at The San Francisco Chronicle - San Francisco, Friday 11/14 6pm
San Francisco Chronicle, 901 Mission Street, San Francisco (map)
We will be arranging speakers who will talk about proposition 8, and also about why we aren't getting accurate coverage. We need to continue to protest proposition 8! The turn-out last Friday was phenomenal and we thank everyone who came out. I called Supervisor Bevan Dufty's office today and was told that they calculate that our march had over 20,000 people! That's amazing. But the San Francisco Chronicle continues to report that we only had 1,000. Our next protest against proposition 8 will be AT the San Francisco Chronicle building.
