Wanna Hate on Prop 8?

    Join a growing mass of human rights activists and everyday citizens who feel just as angry about California’s decision to ban gay marriage as you do.

    Cambridge resident and Boston Architectural College student Ryan MacNeeley, 22, is working in conjuncture with Mass Equality to organize the Boston branch of the nationwide anti-Prop 8 rally on Saturday, November 15, at 1:30 pm at Boston City Hall Plaza. It’s the second rally in less than a week that MacNeeley has organized (the first was Nov. 9 in Central Square), using the social networking tool Facebook as a means to galvanize users and propel them into action. “I have a deep interest in equal rights for all citizens,” MacNeeley says. “It’s up to our government to address this situation immediately.”

     MacNeeley initially began working with Paul Sousa (who he met at a protest) and Kate Leslie (who he met on Facebook, natch) on organizing the rally, and the three quickly found a support system in Mass Equality, who have taken over the logistical and legal aspects of the rally’s preparations. Mass Equality Field Organizer Ryan Brown says that a number of local political and social leaders will attend, and possibly speak at, Saturday’s rally. (Details to follow.)

    "We wanted to join in the fight in Boston and mobilize thousands of people," MacNeeley says, "to make it heard that people aren’t going to tolerate this kind of legislation.  We’re not going to tolerate hate."
