Young adults speak out for choice in SF streets after Walk For Life counterprotest - PT. 1 (audio/mpeg 31.3MB)
A rally was held by a group of counter protesters who added a renewed radical presence to the counter protest. Young school age adults led the action, with many people speaking at the mike on what got them to the action and what they want to do to further the cause beyond today. (16 minutes) The action was spirited, with a very broad range of experiences and perspectives presented in impromptu talks that went far beyond conventional, polite speech. From what I learned, a group called Stop Patriarchy, which organized the counter protest for the second year in a row, spent quality time organizing in Bay Area Schools, finding many young women and also men outraged at the climate around abortions. Talks ranged into perspectives on sex, gender, and personal expression. Organizers from the Revolutionary Communist Party and World Can’t Wait were also present. The young adult contingent was very important. From watching the Walk For Life march, the biggest increased demographic of anti-choice activists seems to be school age young adults, especially twenty-somethings. A group called Students For Life has been successfully organizing on campuses and churches to swell its rank with the offensive message that abortion is murder and needs to be completely eliminated and criminalized throughout the U.S. The activists then headed for a strategy session at the Unitarian Church to develop continue organizing around these issues.
