LGBT Protest Planned for DNC Fundraiser in Boston on Tuesday
In addition to protests planned for the Washington D.C. LGBT Fundraiser this Thursday, Join the Impact Massachusetts has plans to protest a Democratic Party fundraiser in Boston on Tuesday headlined by VP Joe Biden.
The group writes, on Facebook:
"As we've all seen, we've gotten more in the past 6 days for the LGBT community than we have in the past 6 months. Once this firestorm of criticism and public pressure began over the repugnant DOMA brief, we began hearing that the Hate Crimes bill may pass very soon. Then once the boycotting began of the DNC fundraiser in Washington, DC, we then learned about the relocation benefits memorandum which seemed to be a direction reaction to the boycott. Money talks folks and we have a HUGE opportunity here. Putting on this protest will be emblematic of a larger issue at hand for the Obama administration and the Dems. No longer is the protest singled out just in Washington, DC, but now they're spreading. If the Obama administration and the Dems want to tamper down frustrations, the only way for them to do so will be to take concrete strong action to pass substantive LGBT civil rights measures. Let's make them do it!"
