Well, today is the day. This afternoon at say 2:45 PM, we'll see if our “fierce allies” in City Hall were able to finally resolve the issue of police protecton and allow women who don't typically attend fundraisers and public meetings the safety to exercise their first amendment rights?
Don't get me wrong — I had responses when I reached out, but not a single leader offered to attend in solidarity with these women. Not to me at least. They just kept telling me to call if there's a problem. Making sure the police do their jobs is great, but it is really sad that NO ONE thinks it worth an hour of their time to show solidarity for victims of Pittsburgh bureacratic incompetence and homophobia.
Maybe I'll be wrong and they'll show. I'll let you know.
