Weekend Protests Directed at Anti-Marriage Equality NY Senators

Marriage Equality New York is organizing several protests against senators who voted against equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. The protests follow a recent vote by the New York State Senate where same-sex marriage failed by a 38-24 margin.

The protests are scheduled throughout the weekend. Activists are responding by supporting opposition (pro-equality) candidates for the upcoming 2010 election.

MENY Protests are against Senators Hiram Monserrate, Carl Kruger, George Onorato, and Thomas Morahan.

New York is the so-called Capital of the World. If anywhere should be leading the way for LGBT rights, shouldn't it be the great NY?

I have friends from NY State, and they have never felt out of place as a gay or lesbian person within their respective communities.

Come on NY, if enough people want change, then change will happen. I'd be there to support if I could.

It's interesting that people who used to be putting time and effort into electing these people are instead putting time and effort into protesting against them. I wonder if anyone in the media will catch onto this and the potential implications.
