ANTI-HATE RALLY - Saturday in Portland

According to a post at, the home of a lesbian couple living in Poland, Maine, was basically entirely destroyed in what appears to be a hate crime. (There are pictures and video on the site, as well as a text description of the damage.)

To protest this act of violence, there will be a rally in Monument Square, Portland, at 11 am Saturday, July 22, held by Equality Maine, the Maine Civil Liberties Union, and the Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence.
