"No dollars for hate!"
That's what protesters chanted as they marched up and down the street outside Century Theatres, 1715 Maple Ave., on Saturday night. Armed with pride flags, picket signs and banners, about 400 people came to protest a $9,999 donation that Cinemark CEO Alan Stock made to the Yes on 8 campaign.
"If you're going to target our community with hate, whether it's Prop. 8 or any other measure going forward, it's no longer going to be without consequences," said Andy Thayer, Weinberg '85, the co-founder of Chicago's Gay Liberation Network. "We are going to hit you in the pocketbook just the way you hit us in terms of our rights."
