AIDS Activistis Use Good Friday to Shame the Catholic Church
After they make their point at Wells Fargo, the protesters will march on to the San Francisco Police Department, to shame the cops for their policy of using condoms as evidence against sex workers.
Then the AIDS coalition will raise hell -- literally --
by laying on the
steps of the Mission Dolores Church ashes of those who died during the AIDS/HIV epidemic.
There they will also protest the Catholic Church's role of "condemning people to die of AIDS globally." Activists claim the church's restrictions on condoms and abortion are repressing sexual freedom and health.
"Its 25 years since we started ACT UP, and the Catholic Church is still to blame. This Good Friday we will mourn our dead and fight like hell for the living here in San Francisco and around the world," Palmer said.
As the march's arrives to Harvey Milk Plaza, protesters will read the names of AIDS/HIV community members who died during the epidemic in the Bay Area.
