Tell Supervisor Wiener to STAY AWAY from the 35th Annual Candlelight Memorial Honoring Harvey Milk

    1. Petition by

      San Francisco Group for Accountable Government

Tell Supervisor Wiener to STAY AWAY from the 35th Annual Candlelight Memorial Honoring Harvey Milk

Harvey Milk’s most resonate message was “we’ve got to give them hope”.  Harvey was known for advocating on behalf of the disenfranchised and displaced.

The current elected sitting in the seat once graced by Harvey does not understand Harvey’s message or care about his ideals and therefore cannot and does not respect them. 

The District Eight Supervisor has no business selling out the memorial for Harvey to further his own political agenda while generating yet more media attention for himself.   He should not be speaking to the crowd and has no rightful place at a memorial organized by and for the people who wish to celebrate and honor Harvey’s memory and legacy.

Join the members of the San Francisco Group for Accountable Government (SFGAG) and tell Supervisor Wiener to STAY AWAY from the candlelight memorial honoring the great Harvey Milk to be held at the Pride Flag on 11.27.13 at 7pm.

      as a gay man who survived aids and has lived in the castro a very long time and a man now facing my senior years i can't believe so many of the ones who have survived along with me are such a despicable lot so full of vitriole as to support this piece of shit againt our elected supervisor. if you don't like our district official, get off your lazy asses and run for office. otherwise, shut up. anyone who signs this petition should be ashamed and that includes people like mr. hightower who doesn't even live in the Castro! shame. shame. shame.

      “Harvey Milk showed rare courage, spoke the truth, and gave a voice to those who had none. Like a cowardly bully, Scott Wiener has abused his power and used lies and deceit to do just the opposite, take that voice away. How is it even remotely appropriate for this hit man of the wealthy to attend a candlelight memorial for a genuinely great and selfless man whose vision he is so far removed from”

      I loathe everything Scott Wiener stands for. The LGBTQ movement is a Social Justice movement with no place for the likes of Neocon Wiener
