Protesters attack civil rights in Olympia
Protesters attack civil rights in Olympia
by SGN Staff

A group of around 1,000 protesters were bused in from across Washington Thursday, March 19, to protest Gay marriage at the Capitol Building in Olympia.

"It's very clear that our opposition is frustrated," said Josh Friedes, advocacy director for Equal Rights Washington. "They understand they have lost momentum, we are succeeding in achieving rights, and they are trying to figure out how to stop the march toward equality & they really don't know what to do. We heard today really ultra-conservative, Christian, rigid definitions of marriage. It was really quite shocking."

The protesters claimed Washington's domestic partnership bill will cost taxpayers $30 million, Gay marriage will be taught in public schools, and those who disagree with Gay marriage would be sent to jail.

"It's shocking that people actually believe this stuff," Friedes said, "but some people do, and we have to constantly be setting the record straight."
