Gays Protest Governor's Veto

Not only has Wilson outraged fair-minded people in California with his vetoes of the gay employment bill and the sexual harassment bill, but he and the LAPD want to deny citizens the right to peacefully assemble to redress their government. I speak of the police actions at the protest on Oct. 23 at the Century Plaza Hotel. Not only were people denied the right to assemble on the public sidewalk in front of the hotel, but the police ordered them from the median where no one was doing anything but reminding people of Wilson's veto and the call for his recall from office.

Perhaps this is why Wilson needs to hide behind mounted police and has more police than one might see in a square in China?
