WSBA Dodges Watchmen Convention

posted by on October 18 at 14:49 PM

The Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) has moved an eventóoriginally scheduled for this weekend at the Lynnwood Convention Centeróbecause of a potential conflict with the Watchmen on the Walls’ upcoming big gay Lynnwood party.

WSBA spokeswoman Judy Berrett says they were concerned about “how clouded” things would be at the convention center, and didn’t want the 45 people expected to attend WSBA’s event getting caught up in the crowds.

WSBA has moved the event to their downtown offices.

Why does the WSBA hate First Amendment rights? ;)

Actually, having a bunch of lawyers around wouldn't be such a bad idea. If these nazis say or do anything that can be legally classified as a hate crime we can throw the book at them later.

The protest rally WILL take place at the Lynnwood Convention Center beginning at 9:45-noonish. The LCC and Lynnwood PD have been great in assisting us with our protest rally.
PLEASE be peaceful, powerful and respectuful. We are there to make a statement, not an ass of ourselves. Our message to the public will get lost if we don't remain united. Plus, there are other conventions going on at the same time, so not everyone entering LCC is a member of WotW. I hope to see you there with balloons, banners, posters and friends! Peace
