20 thoughts on “Abraham Lincoln and the British labour movement

  1. It’s kind of crazy to think that this was 150 years ago, seemingly a long time ago. And yet today, the Supreme Court will rule on Prop 8. Ah, human rights. Why is it some human issues take longer than others? At least we are making progress, though, right? Some kind of progress? xo

        This is it.

        Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will finally hear arguments on the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). If you think it’s wrong to deny basic rights to LGBT Americans, now’s the time to say it.

        Help us get to 100,000 strong calling on the Supreme Court to overturn DOMA: Sign your name to support marriage equality >>

        Under DOMA, same-sex couples are denied over 1,000 protections and responsibilities automatically guaranteed to married heterosexual couples. It’s just wrong. Every family deserves the benefits of equal protection under the law, and all Americans deserve the right to marry the person they love.

        This movement for equality is growing larger every day. If we keep the pressure on, marriage equality could be a reality by this summer.

        Let’s make this happen.
