Several activists were arrested in California this week for protesting a meeting of their city council, which voted to reverse a mayoral decree designating June as LGBT Pride Month.

The Huffington Post reports that police removed the protestors from the council meeting in Porterville, a small city located in California’s Central Valley, on Tuesday. The protestors, including Robin McGehee of LGBT direct action group GetEqual, were charged with disturbing the peace at the packed assembly, which debated the recent declaration by the city’s mayor, Virginia Gurrola.
