Thousands Protest Denial Of Gay Marriage Rights

Organized by Join The Impact, thousands in Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and elsewhere across the country on Saturday rallied against the passage of Proposition 8 in California, which rescinded the marriage rights of gays. Of course, this is more than a gay rights issue; it is also a civil and human rights issue.

Heather Baker, special education teacher from Boston who addressed the crowd at Boston's City Hall Plaza, put it perfectly: "We are the American family, we live next door to you, we teach your children, we take care of your elderly. We need equal rights across the country."
