Backbone march invaded by antigay men
by reposted photos
Tuesday Aug 26th, 2008 1:24 PM
On the morning of Tuesday August 26, 2008, the Backbone campaign had a permit for a march leaving from Civic Center Park in Denver, and proceeding towards the DNC convention center. Early reports are that some participants in this march were arrested for trying to send away an abrasive anti-gay christian group that entered their group and was engaging in harrassing, invasive behavior. There was some yelling, and people tried to hold signs in front of their signs, and despite the fact that the backbone campaign held the permit, the provokers were given quite a bit of tolerance by police. The police charged someone for pulling a bullhorn cord.

The Backbone Campaign tries to encourage democrats to make delivery on their promises in congress, rather than continuing to cave in on issues such as ending Iraq war funding and impeachment.

This set of photos tells a lot of the story behind this invasion by biblical fundamentalists: http://picasaweb.google.com/morry32/DemocraticNationalConventionAugust26thMorning
