Thousands of people marched through the streets of Seattle to protest the passage of California's Prop 8. Similar demonstrations took place in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C. and many other cities.

The start of the march protesting Prop. 8 on Seattle's Capitol Hill, marching down Broadway.

People marched from Capitol Hill down to Westlake Park.

There were people as far as one could see on Broadway on Capitol Hill.

Turnabout is fairplay.

LOVED this sign!

Probably the most largest and most visible sign.

The tail end of the march. The SPD couldn't send a couple of their snazzy new Dodge Challenger-based police cars?

Several business on Broadway had "We Support Equal Rights" posters in their windows.

To all of you that marched in are the best!

My heart was uplifted and I continue to believe that our time is coming! Let no one tear asunder what is reserved for those that understand "what love is".

What does Pederson want us to do?

I'm a little confused by Jamie Pederson's "call to action." Why should we be trying to convince our neighbors and friends of support for marriage equality when its HIS COLLEAGUES in the legislature who get to vote on the current marriage equality bill? My friends and neighbors were marching with me and don't need any more convincing. He seems to be pointing us in the wrong direction, that is, AWAY FROM WHERE REAL PROTEST WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE. And that's exactly the way the Democratic Party has historically operated to kill social movements, by distracting them from the real targets of resistance and by substitutionism. I wonder if he's received commands from the Party hierarchy to keep us away from Olympia.
