Video: Five people arrested during yesterday's Prop 8 protest

Soulforce in Colorado, a Denver-based nonprofit dedicated to ending oppression against gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people, has posted a YouTube video of yesterday's protest of the California Supreme Court ruling upholding Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage. (For more about the protest, check out our blog previewing the event.)

The most dramatic part of the video is when a straight couple -- perhaps unknowingly? -- stops by to pick up a marriage license at the city clerk's office, where a chain of protestors with pink bandanas tied around their arms block the counter. Arrests -- albeit calm arrests -- ensue.
