Queer Bloc - Counter Protest The Westboro Baptist Church
Friday Jan 18, 2013 3:30pm-6:30pm in New York
This is a call to all queers, 'fag-enablers', tranarchists, anarchists and allies.

The Westboro Baptist Church plans to have a picket in Times Square on January 18th between 4:30-5:30pm. Their signs usually consist of vile and hateful messages such as 'God Hates Fags'. Just recently, they picketed the Sandy Hook funerals but were met with a large counter-protest.

Our plan is gather at Bryant Park, form a queer bloc and march are fabulous asses to Times Square to disrupt their picket. We'll cast them out of our city like we did to the Greek fascists party, Golden Dawn.

Bring whistles (noisemakers in general), flags, flour, paint, markers, signs and a friend or two. Where pink (and black) to express solidarity and unity with all radical queers.

Join us by RSVPing to this event, inviting your friends and sharing this online. Lets give em hell!
