One Natural Experience Samples At No On Prop 8 Rally
I was working yesterday, when one of my co-workers ran into my office and told me to "get to the window!" Suddenly, there were hundreds of people sitting in the street on Westwood Blvd, outside Coffee Bean, protesting the passage of Prop H8. We ran outside with coolers and cold O.N.E. 100% Natural Coconut Water to hydrate the participants.
Here is what Channel 7 had to say:
WESTWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- The fight over Proposition 8 has poured back into the streets. Hundreds of opponents have taken their message of equality directly to one of the largest backers of the controversial measure.
Demonstrators took aim at the massive Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Westwood. Protest organizers allege that the Mormon church supplied more than $15 million to help get Prop 8 passed in California.
Thursday evening the crowd was estimated between 300 and 600 people. Protestors walked westbound on Century City West on the way back to the Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Westwood. The crowd has dispersed slightly, easing traffic on Santa Monica Blvd.
Thursday evening, crowds has been marched past the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, heading eastbound on Wilshire Blvd. Wilshire was backed up for miles back to the 405 Freeway. Protestors then transitioned to eastbound Santa Monica Blvd.
