Today was SlutWalk NYC! I had nothing to do with the planning, but I was determined to go on it.

Do you want a cut? Very well… )

This was a very spirited gathering of women (and men!) and the walk started at Union Square, wound around the East Village, and ended up back at Union Square. I took about 200 pictures, so this is a very minimal representation of the walk. We'll do it again next year, and I bet there will be drums, just as at the Dyke March.



"Stop the violence! End to the silence!"



"End with the blaming; stop the shaming!" "Yes means yes, no means no; whatever we say, wherever we go."

As you probably know by now, LiVEJOURNAL has discontinued new basic accounts; the only two options are a paid account or a plus account. beckyzoole has proposed this:

The one-day content strike is on for this Friday, March 21, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT.

For 24 hours, we will not post or comment to LJ. Not in our own journals, not in communities. Not publicly, privately, or under friends-lock.

This is a protest that will have long-lasting effects, showing up forever in the daily posting statistics.

This is a protest that will not harm LJ in the long run, as leaving LJ might do.

This is a protest that will demonstrate the power of community, as all users unite to support Basic users and the concept of adfree space.

This is a protest that will educate the new owners that LJ is driven by user-created content.

How Can I Help?

DO post about this in your own LJ.
DO post and comment about it in appropriate communities.
DO remember that it's based on Greenwich Mean Time, which may not be your local time.
DO turn off LoudTwitter and your RSS feeds for 24 hours.
DO feel free to friend beckyzoole for updates, and defriend when the strike is over.
DON'T forget to get permission from community mods before making an off-topic post or comment about the strike.
DON'T be spammy with your posts or comments about the strike.

I will be participating. I hope you will, too.
