Laguna Beach Demonstration

Saturday night November 8th over 2,000 men, women and children demonstrated to show their opposition to hate, and their support for equal rights in downtown Laguna Beach. A short program began right at 5:30 pm at City Hall.

Speakers included Laguna Beach Mayor Jane Egly, organizer Audrey Prosser, ECCO President Jeff LeTourneau and Dr. Jorge Rodriguez. Then everyone marched down Broadway to Main Beach. After lots of cheering and honking along Coast Highway, the growing crowd marched back to City Hall. No one wanted to go home, so most stayed and waved signs, chanted and received more support from passing motorists.

Here are some photo highlights from that extraordinary night.
