Police, Crowd Control and the Protests

Posted on 30 November 2008 by admin

Kevin Miniter, who was arrested in the widely seen footage during the initial Prop 8 protest march the day following the election, has spoken to the Washington Blade to recount his story.

I have to admit that while protesting, I wondered what might happen if I were to be arrested. Not surprisingly, Kevin makes it pretty clear that it wasn’t pleasant.  In the end, they released him after 2 days, presumably without charges. But he was released with bruising and bleeding resulting from a questionable use of force when subduing him. Seems to be that they were using him as an example to keep the rest of the crowd back. The video below shows the event.

Mormon is Out at Los Angeles Film Festival

Posted on 25 November 2008 by admin

Richard Raddon, the Mormon director of the LA Film Festival, has resigned from his job following the uproar of controversy around his $1500 donation to the Yes on 8 campaign.

The donation came to light lmost two weeks ago, a revelation that caused Raddon to tender his resignation to Film Independent. At the time, the board did not accept Raddon’s offer, though the move didn’t quite stem the debate over Raddon’s future and whether a potential boycott would devastate the festival when it returns next summer.

Help Push MILK to Top Box Office at Opening

Posted on 22 November 2008 by admin

 

Please encourage everyone you know to see the new film, Milk, between Wednesday and Sunday. This is a very important film about a historic person, time, and events for gay civil rights. It is very timely with many parallels to the current uproar about Proposition 8. And if you don’t already know the story, I can promise you that this will NOT be a boring docudrama. The film is often mentioned as a top Oscar contender. Please visit NoMilkForCinemark.com and support their efforts to see the film at a gay rights friendly theater.

No Milk For Cinemark: Don’t See Milk at H8 Theater

Posted on 19 November 2008 by admin

NoMilkForCinemark.com is a new site trying to go beyond a boycott of Cinemark Theaters to specifically ask people NOT to see Milk, the eagerly awaited film about Gay pioneer Harvey Milk, at a Cinemark Theater. The CEO of Cinemark, Alan Stock, donated $9999 to the Yes on 8 Campaign, and the site is outraged that the company will now profit from showing MILK in his theaters.

Of course we’re all going to see Milk though! The site proclaims, “if 1,000 of us commit to see MILK at a competitor’s theater instead of Cinemark, at an average cost of $10 per ticket, that’s $10,000 of lost revenue”

Targeting Mormons Unfair?

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
