Queer Consumer Strike, March 13th through March 27th

Please pass this on to as many people as you can. We can make an impact!!!
Information about an interactive Web site will soon follow

I am merely a messenger. Please post any comments at the original post. Respond at original post Website info will be posted there and I'll post it in your community as well.

I (epilady's co-worker) propose that we all go on a consumer strike for 2 weeks. From March 13th through March 27th, don't buy anything you don't need--no luxury or leisure items (which are often taxed at higher rates).

A friend/coworker of epilady wrote this letter. Look for a website with more details soon, but for now, pass this on

Hello all,

During this human rights crisis, all of us - whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered-and our supporters need to take action if we want the same rights as other Americans.

It goes against everything America claims to stand for to manipulate the
constitution with discriminatory amendments. Protecting the civil rights of every American-not just the majority of Americans-is a part of the Constitution's original design.

President Bush and all of his supporters now trying to ban gay marriage need to feel the direct impact of our community. Remember that our nation is strongly capitalist based and it's all about money at the end of the day.

Sooo...

If we aren't good enough to get married, then the states don't need our money, either. Let them feel it where it hurts. This is something that we all can do.

Please distribute this message widely!

I also suggest that we pledge to donate the $$ we would have spent that week to an org like MoveOn, HRC, or Millionformarriage and pass the list of pledge names on to major papers so they get the point that our money, our votes, and our lives are not to be trifled with.
