Successful Protest at new Burbank Hobby Lobby on 4th

More protests scheduled for Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

In the wake of the decision by the SCOTUS that Hobby Lobby could stop paying for some forms of contraception, activists have converged on Hobby Lobby to protest. The decision said that “closely held private companies” with five or fewer owners are protected by the 1st Amendment if they wish to exemt themselves from aspects of the Affordable Care Act.

Protesters argued that this is not only an anti-woman attack, but an enlargement of corporate personhood, and an enlargement of corporate power in general.

Social media was used to spread the word about a protest against Hobby Lobby's grand opening in Burbank on July 4th. Locals turned up with signs, and activists from across Los Angeles came as well, with an arts program put together by Inglewood Guerilla Arts. The photos were picked from those taken by IGA.

Participants included Lynn Harris Ballen of KPFK's Feminist Magazine, poet Sharon D. Johnson, and Bill with his awesome banner.

The next protests, organized by activists in Burbank, are on Mon 7/7 @12PM, Wed 7/9 @6PM, and 7/12 @1PM.

It has removable letters so the sign can be adapted. It's also covered in sequins for visual effect.
