Dykes vs Costa Mesa

by Carolina Friday, Jul. 26, 2002 at 2:52 AM

Recently anti-globilization protesters complained of mistreatment in Costa Mesa. Now Lesbian activists may have trouble of their own with that Orange County city.

At theJuly 24th 7:00pm HRC meeting @ Costa Mesa City Hall, 77 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa, CA

OC Dyke March planned to present their event to the Human Relations Committee of Costa Mesa to ask for their support. They urged as many women as possible to show up.

The Dykes' Lori Hutson said in her e-mail urging support:

"[We...] won’t put up with their bureaucratic bullshit!

"The city of Costa Mesa has approved our special events permit for the Dyke March with unrealistic conditions.

"First and foremost they are charging over ,000 dollars for police protection in addition to other fees totaling ,699.00. Not to mention the fact that they have approved a route that is hidden within a residential area, refusing to allow us the exposure that we demand.

"These conditions are outrageous given that no other Dyke March nation wide has to pay anything over a 'nominal' permit fee, while many do not pay a fee at all and take to major streets expressing their first amendment right to peacefully assemble. The Supreme Court has ruled on this issue several times, stating that unreasonable costs associated with freedom of speech is unconstitutional. What is the city of Costa Mesa trying to get away with?

"It is time to take a stand and unite!... Dykes unite! "

For further information, contact their center @www.thecenteroc.org
