A few weeks ago (Saturday, Nov 15th) was the Join the Impact protest against California's Prop 8 which removed the right that gay people had previously held to marry. Simultaneous protests happened across the country. I went to the one in DC and we marched from the capitol building past the Washington monument (or as one of the protest organizers called it, the national phallic symbol) to the White House. There were somewhere between 5 and 10 thousand people there, despite the tornado warning and heavy rain. It was a wonderful protest and the start of what I think will be an exciting movement.
One of my friends from college was the organizer of the DC protest and Pam's House Blend has a nice interview with him.
