Longtime LGBT activists Cleve Jones and David Mixner have posted "a call to action", calling for local demonstrations and grassroots actions around the time the Supreme Court will hear the Prop 8 and DOMA cases on March 26 and 27.
From Jones and Mixner: "Between us, we have over 80 years of experience in
the movement for peace and social justice. In particular, as gay men, we
have fought for the rights and dignity of our own community, known
today as LGBT. We do not claim that age necessarily brings wisdom, but
it does bring memories and we have many... Now is the time, once again,
to recognize the unique moment before us and to act with the greatest
power and intelligence possible."
The activists say the best way to deal with the rally being organized by the anti-gay National Organization to Marriage is to "ignore them."
Instead, they "encourage all LGBT advocates and all
fair-minded Americans who believe in equality and justice to take part
in public actions on during the last week of March."
