Coming up this week:
Tuesday, September 27 – Due date for a petition for rehearing en banc before the Ninth Circuit in Diaz v. Brewer
Saturday, October 1 – Slutwalk to end excuses for rape – New York City. Slutwalk began in Toronto in January as a spontaneous community response to a Toronto police official quoted as saying that if women didn't want to be raped, they shouldn't dress like sluts. Since then there have been walks in Boston, DC, Chicago and other cities.
Sunday, October 2 – The scheduled date for Belgrade Pride, an event that has been iffy because of the threat of anti-gay violence and the hesitation of some local officials to guarantee police protection for the pride marchers. The 2009 parade was canceled; last year it went forward. This year – stay tuned.
