Protest Tuesday Against Prop 8 Decision

The Fairness Campaign will hold a rally Tuesday night to protest the California Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the controversial Proposition 8 same-sex marriage ban.

The Fairness Campaign was planning to host a gathering downtown no matter what. If Prop 8 had been overturned, they would have celebrated.

But same-sex marriages are still illegal in California. They’re also banned in Kentucky. Campaign Director Chris Hartman says the protest is aimed at both states.

“The Kentucky State Legislature should hear that their constituents here demand marriage equality as well,” he says. “Civil rights should not be decided by the majority.”

A local rally protesting the passage of Proposition 8 was held last year. Several hundred protestors showed up to carry signs outside of City Hall.
