Protest against Russian homophobia this Saturday
Sign the All Out petition for the repeal of anti-gay laws
London - 9 August 2013
Protest against Russia's new anti-gay law which criminalises LGBT freedom of expression - and against homophobic violence and the wider crackdown on all civil liberties in Russia.
Saturday 10 August, 1-4pm, opposite Downing Street, Whitehall, London SW1. INFO: http://on.fb.me/12ZLo8i
“Putin is the 'Czar of Homophobia'. His regime has outlawed the public expression of LGBT identity and affection - and prohibited the advocacy of LGBT human rights - in circumstances where a person under 18 might see it. The adoption of children by overseas same-sex couples has also been banned and LGBT organisations that receive donations from abroad are being fined as ‘foreign agents’. These are the latest examples of escalating homophobic and political repression in Russia,” said Peter Tatchell, Director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.
