'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Activists Protest Obama From Land, Air And Sea In Miami

While President Obama spoke at a Miami residence, where attendees paid $5,000 to $18,000 to get in the door, the gay activists of GetEqual protested outside on the street with 10-foot signs reading: “End the Discharges Now” and “We’ll Give When We GetEQUAL:”

Since Mourning's mansion abuts the bay, GetEqual also launched three boats containing activists equipped with signs and bullhorns, which they used to shout chants during president's speech. Additionally, they released into the air four "cloud buster" balloons with 10-foot-long banners reading "GetEQUAL.org" that had been tethered to the sides of the boats.
