The View From Your Protest: 11/15/08

Gw765h137

Tomorrow, a virally-generated national day of protest across America is taking shape to protest the attack on the core civil rights of a small minority in California. It's a protest to demand equal treatment under the law for gay couples. It's a radical demand for a traditional institution and also a protest against those who seek to impose religious restrictions on civil law. It is a defense of both religious freedom and the freedom of those whom many (but not all) religions condemn.

The Dish will devote Saturday to covering the protests. Please send me stories, anecdotes, photographs, music, Youtubes, and graphics that reflect what's going on around the country. As on election day, we'll try and let you speak via this blog to the wider world, and convey a sense from the ground up of how people are feeling and arguing and acting.

There are demos all across the country, and a new one seems to spring up every minute. You can find the details for yours here. Show up. And then email me about your experience. The protests converge at 1.30 pm EST. They now seem to be spreading globally.

Fight Back. ACT UP!
