Wake up! A few years ago, a person was stabbed in Jerusalem at the parade. Last year there was a hate crime - that the parade this year is meant to commemorate. We are marching for the very existence of civil rights - our right to express ourselves freely, our freedom of choice. The police say that the route was changed in order to keep the "status quo". But there is no status quo in regards with the treatment of the LGBT community - there is only escalating violence! We are one step away from the police providing the marchers with a huge closet to march inside. The very existence of the LGBT community is a sign of a healthy, pluralistic, accepting, enlightened society - whoever believes in these should be at this march and appose it's new route.
