CA Supreme Court to Release Prop 8 Ruling Tues. May 26, 10am
SF Demonstrations at 10am and 5pm
The California Supreme Court has announced that it will issue its decision on the validity of Proposition 8 Tuesday, May 26. This proposition, which narrowly passed last November, overturned same-sex marriage rights in California.
In the event that the court lets Proposition 8 stand, or invalidates the thousands of same-sex unions that took place last year, there will be protests in San Francisco and across the state. Activists from the ANSWER Coalition will be participating in two events on Tuesday, May 26 in San Francisco.
The first will be a peaceful civil disobedience, meeting at the Supreme Court in San Francisco, located on McAllister between Polk and Larkin. This will take place immediately following the decision, scheduled for 10:00 am (Tue. May 26).
At 5:00 pm, there will be a mass rally at Civic Center Plaza (Grove and Larkin), followed by a march at 6:00 pm to Yerba Buena Gardens (Mission St. between 3rd and 4th Sts.). All are welcome to participate in or support both of these events. Should the Proposition be overturned, this victory will be celebrated and the community will press on for full equality and federal recognition.
