"No Justice No Pride" seems quite aggressive in demands that Pride marches not admit police, corporations during the Age of Trump

Stephanie Higgins provides a vimeo from a group “No Justice No Pride”, in Spanish “Sim Justicis no hay  Orgullo” from Phoenix.

Sin Justicia No Hay Orgullo / No Justice No Pride from Stephanie Figgins on Vimeo.

The group wants Pride celebrations to deny corporations and police to march.

The video points out that Stonewall as actually started by two trans people, not cis males. It also talks about deportations

The group has a page on Facebook here.

And there in Phoenix the group was able to shut down the Phoenix Pride march, according to this report.

The group has a meeting at the Washington Peace Center on Constitution Avenue, story.

I found Lou Chibarro’s story on the group in the print edition page 1 May 5 but could not find the individual story separately.

Update: May 16, 2017

The Washington Blade has an op-ed by Mark Lee on the issue.
