Chick-fil-A protest falls flat in downtown Atlanta

image This protest lost its fizzle. A handful of LGBT activists, intent on chastising Chick-fil-A for its anti-gay ways, gathered in downtown Atlanta on Friday to protest the Atlanta-based chicken chain’s Leadercast: Voices of Change taking place inside the massive Georgia World Congress Center. But without direct access to conference attendees, the protestors opted to move to nearby Centennial Olympic Park to take advantage of the pedestrian traffic during a sunny lunchtime rush. The event was organized by the Queer Justice League and GetEQUAL Georgia and was set to last for three hours. With just a few protesters on hand, the Equality Action fizzled about 1 p.m., two hours ahead of schedule.
