The city approved a peaceful protest to take place tonight at Temple Square, 6 p.m. State Senator Scott McCoy and Represntative Jackie Biskupski will speak at the rally which will begin on the corner of South Temple and State Street. Attendees will then march around the Temple and the Church Office Bulding. Please dress warmly and show up early. You may want to carpool, take a bus or TRAX. I personally received six texts last night and several emails regarding the protest and encouraging everyone to spread the word. This could be huge. Remember, however, to arrive with a respectful attitude. Participants are NOT encouraged to incite violence, destroy property or even heckle passerby who might support Prop 8.
One organizer writes, "We need to show this nation the best side of us so that they can see that we are normal people and we deserve every right and recognition that they have. Please dont go overboard or be disrespectful in any way. Please pass this along to everyone you know so that we can have the best rally possible and so that this can be the BEGINNING of OUR civil rights movement.Let us sit on the sidelines and be complacent no more! But let us do this right!"
Also, it seems this movie couldn't have come out at a better time:
