This I got from [ profile] ciani's LJ, which was the most recent full-post regarding the protest:

(Clevelanders please note that the protest organizer, Willow, is attempting to get the permit today. The location could change, but the time and date will not.)

"Join the Impact is organizing a nationwide protest to take place in front of city halls all across America against proposition 8 and other anti-gay measures that were passed on Tuesday."

i checked for cleveland, and the protest will take place in front of cleveland city hall at 1:30 pm this coming saturday, november 15. i plan to be there and would love to get as many peeps as possible with signs and whatnot. here's the address for city hall:

601 lakeside ave. east
cleveland, oh 44114

here's Join the Impact's website where you can get the equivalent protests for other cities:

it'd be awesome if you could repost this in your journal. thanks!

edit: they changed all the links since yesterday! argh. If you get a 404 please just go to

Here is the National Flyer

I just read the following in [ profile] indigoranger's LJ re: location:

i saw conflicting spaces for the protest, so i sent an email to the contact listed on the Facebook page

It will definitely be happening at the Free Stamp. We tried to get a permit for Public Square, but they're putting lights up this weekend. So Free Stamp it is!

We hope to see you there!

And finally, in case you have been hiding in a hole and haven't seen this moment of brilliance (again, snagged from [ profile] indigoranger):

The concept of getting a bureaucratic permit for protesting seems strange to me. :/

I wonder if they have Burn The Fucker Down permits for more hardcore civil disobedience.

The Keith Olbermann thing rocks. I think that is the best argument I've heard! Awesome.
