Fri Jan 5 2007 (Updated 01/28/07) “Forward, Not Back—Reproductive Justice for All!” in San Francisco
On Saturday, January 20th 2007, National and local feminist and community activists convened a broad-based, peaceable counter-protest in response to the third annual “Walk for Life—West Coast” march in San Francisco. The kick-off rally began at 10:30 a.m. at Pier 5 (on Embarcadero near Market Street); this was followed at 11:30 a.m. by a multi-issue counter-demonstration to the “Walk for Life” route along the Embarcadero waterfront; and ended with a community rally at Aquatic Park with more speakers, music and art. BACORR also hosted a post-rally gathering at New Valencia Hall at 1908 Mission St in San Francisco at 4:00 p.m.

In observation of the 34th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion in the United States, pro-choice advocates— joined by representatives from the immigrant, labor, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender, disability, people of color and youth communities—will line the anti-abortionists’ march route to denounce escalating assaults on reproductive freedom, civil liberties, and women’s health by religious fundamentalists and governmental policies. Other planned activities include: an opening rally featuring health providers, elected officials, and grassroots organizers; performers; a closing speak-out; giant puppets; a public art installation, and more.
