Arrests at Proposition 8 protest

Los Angeles police have arrested people at a Proposition 8 protest in Hollywood Wednesday evening.

Protests against the slim passing of Proposition 8, a proposal that outlaws GLBT marriages and invalidates existing marriages were held in 8 locations in California, including Hollywood and San Francisco.

Over 1000 people attended the Proposition 8 protest in Hollywood, but a small group broke away from the main protest, resulting in a “tactical alert” from LA police, that resulted in 4 arrests.

GLBT groups are still refusing to admit defeat on the proposition, claiming that some 4 million votes are yet to be counted. With 99% of districts reporting, the Yes vote remains ahead with 52% of the vote.
