Anchorage Supporters Protest Gay Marriage Ban

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Between 50 and 100 people gathered in
Anchorage to protest a ban on gay marriage.

Anchorage was among cities across the nation that held protests
Saturday, including Boston, San Francisco and Chicago.

In Anchorage, people gathered in front of the Atwood Building downtown. The group, chanting and holding signs, then marched to
nearby City Hall and then back to the Atwood.

Organizer Stef Gingrich says no one has the right to vote away
another citizen's rights.
A similar protest, albeit smaller, was held in Fairbanks.

The protests are in response to the Nov. 4 vote in California
that banned gay marriage in that state.
