Manchester Hotels Boycott Going Global

Manchester hotels has reportedly suffered a loss of atleast 7 million dollars thanks to an LGBT boycott after the owner Doug Manchester donated $125,000 to the anti-gay proposition 8 referendum in California which eliminated the states marriage rights for same-sex couples.

There have been calls for conferences scheduled there to be moved, with over a dozen of them such as the American Association for Justice heeding the call.

Boycott organizers are taking their message global creating posters in English, Spanish, and Japanese.

Please make sure to continue boycotting these properties and alert your friends and family.

I found this fascinating quote today:
Melanie Nathan, a Private Courts mediator in California told LGR this morning, “Under California law, the moment a divorce is filed and the papers served, both parties are automatically restrained from alienating community property. It is hard to imagine that a sophisticated businessman like Mr. Manchester would not know this. He certainly has the legal resources to advise him.”lezgetreal.com, California traditional marriage defender Doug Manchester getting divorced, Aug 2009
You should read the whole article.
