commented on Civil Disobedience: A Proposal
One more March? One more Parade? One more Picnic in the Park? I don't think so.
We need civil disobedience, whether it's this idea or another, or ALL the others.
Last year, over a million people participated in A DAY WITHOUT GAYS, a one-day protest we organized that reflected not only the numbers but the contribution we make to society. As a community, we give billions to a government and economy that treats us as second class citizens. Imagine if we got 10 million to take one day off work and boycott the economy across the country? That will send a louder and clearer message to everyone...not just the D.C. Park Service.
We will be citizens! (Tony Kushner)
