Today, our rights are tried to be prevented, our existence is a problem for someone. Our streets are surrounded by law enforcement and barricades. We want all queers and rights defenders to join this march safely, so that they don’t fit in the streets, they overflow! Before and during the walk:
In this walk, no one can judge you for who you are, how you want to be, and how happy you are. The cops may try to confiscate your colors so they won’t let you into the field. In that case, tell them you know your rights. Ask if they have search and seizure powers. If they insist on confiscating your mask, flag, banner, make a record. Defend your rights. (It is important to keep a record on the paper you brought with you)
