This video feed is also showing footage from last night. The aim of this group is to take a lesson from the protesters in Tahrir Square in Egypt and launch a demonstration that doesn’t simply go away when the day is over. Today, Sept 17, is Day 2.

Looks like the Pride Fairy came early this year. The New York state senate just passed Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Marriage Equality Act by a vote of 33-29.
All Democratic senators execpt pastor Ruben Diaz, Sr. voted for the measure. And they were supported by Republicans Roy McDonald and James Alesi, who had announced their intentions to support the bill before the vote. Republican Steve Saland, who spoke at length about his decision, said, “I hope that my parents would be proud.” They are, Steve!
