More than 20,000 Responds to Emergency Protest & Rally at Historic Sunset Junction Against Prop 8

Los Angeles –More than 20,000 protestors converged about 6 p.m. last Nov. 8 at Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards in Silver Lake near the site of the former Black Cat bar, which the city recently designated a historic-cultural monument for its '60s role as home of the local gay rights movement.

Thousands of people over the past few days have come out in the streets of Los Angeles and other cities to protest the passage of Prop. 8 This is the militant response to the well-funded right-wing campaign of bigotry trying to push millions of LGBT people back into the closet

The march's organizers, the L.A. Coalition for Equal Marriage Rights and the Answer Coalition closed Sunset between Fountain and Sanborn avenues for about two hours as marchers moved west on Santa Monica, north on Vermont Avenue, then east on Hollywood Boulevard back to Silver Lake. Later a smaller group headed toward Hollywood.

The Silver Lake rally began with fiery speeches from the bed of the ANSWER-LA truck. AJLPP ,Pro people Youth(KmB(, Pesante-USA and JFAV activist were at the rally and march flying the Filipino flag..

Among the speakers was Robin Tyler, who said: ""The No on 8 people didn't want us to use the word 'bigots.' But that's what they are, bigots, bigots, bigots," Tyler said, bringing a round of cheers from the growing crowd. "We will never be made invisible again. Never again will we let them define who we are."

No to bigotry and homophobia! No to sexism! No to racism! Equal marriage rights now!
