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!"
