Prop 8 Decision in San Francisco 5/26

Filed under: news — Tags: , , , , , , — joshuaps @ 11:40 pm

The California Supreme Court’s decision to not overturn Proposition 8 was released today at 10 AM. I was in San Francisco with Eric Wolfe ( to cover the community’s reaction to the decision, which would ban gay marriage in California but uphold the legality of the 18,000 same-sex marriages that have already taken place here.

After the decision was announced, the action moved a couple of blocks to the Civic Center, where a sit-in was conducted to protest the decision.

After blocking traffic for 2 hours, police moved to arrest the participants of the sit-in.

Among those arrested included anti-Prop 8 members of the clergy who supported the sit-in, and three minors

More to come, protests still in progress today
