Where do they find these people???

Hello my fellow activist,

I found some videos that I would love to share with you. I feel that these serve as a reminder of the ignorance that is consuming much of the American population presently. We can definitely see that people are not doing their homework before protesting on these key issues. Ignorance, like this, is running rampant in our country today.

40 Days for Life is an anti-abortion organization whose campaigns encourage anti-abortion extremists to lay siege to Planned Parenthoods and other womyn's health care clinics across the country. Their next campaign will be running Feb. 17th through March 28th. 40daysforlife is their website where you can find out more information about their campaign and the exact clinics they will be demonstrating at - harassing patients, doctors and staff and distributing false information. I used this site as a guide to set up pro-choice counter protests and organized clinic defenses, so it can be used as a tool to fight injustice. If a clinic near you is on their target list, call the clinic and ask how you can help!

Stay tuned for the FMF's new Adopt-a-Clinic Campaign kit which can help guide your efforts to support your local women's health care providers.

This organization, God Hates Fags, promotes ignorance and intolerance with large public displays and deplorable slogans on their signs. God Hates Fags is their site that shows their schedule of hateful demonstrations and tactics. This also can be used as a tool to organize counter protests and organize community members around fighting this brand of intolerance and ignorance.

I hope that these videos and websites will not only fuel your passion to fight for social justice in America but also give you an idea of where to organize and focus your protest efforts. The time for action is now! Let's unite in solidarity and organize on campuses to show that we are pro-choice and pro-equality!
