VIDEO: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Protests Interrupt Obama Fundraising – Dan Choi and Others in Chains Again

GetEQUAL activists interrupted President Barack Obama during a speech designed to raise funds for California Senatory, Barbara Boxer’s re-election campaign. The group shouted for the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the U.S. Military’s policy prohibiting openly gay soldiers from serving this country.

President Obama attempted to regain control of the speech and stay on topic, by acknowledging the group, then returning to endorsements for Senator Boxer.

Thursday, March 18th, three LGBT activists were arrested. Lt. Dan Choi, Captain Jim Pietrangelo and Robin McGehee. It made more news than the 200,000 LGBT equality supporters made when they marched on Washington D.C. last October.

GetEQUAL Goes to Jail, But Passes Go.

Today, I learned that action is inspiring. Tomorrow, I hope to learn that it’s also contagious.

As my facebook, twitter and email exploded today with little clips of the DADT Rally, I marveled at an act of well timed genius. While the HRC was negotiating equality with the well-oiled political machine, the people were speaking. Grassroots activists took to the streets refusing to negotiate their rights… our rights.
