I’ve never been all that big on protests, but for those who are, NOW is organizing rallies outside of movie theaters across the country this weekend to protest the tacit acceptance of rape by all of the major Hollywood players who signed the petition against Roman Polanski’s arrest (including, by the way, Martin Scorsese, Natalie Portman, Stephen Soderbergh, Emma Thompson, and Harvey Weinstein). Go here to find out if there’s a rally in your city on Saturday, or how to start one if there’s not.
While we’re on the topic, I want to throw in Jay Smooth’s two cents. He’s always pretty on point, and this is no exception. Awesome.
