London LGBT Rights Protest outside Russian Embassy (10 August 2013)

posted 31 Jul 2013, 02:08 by Rights in Russia   [ updated 31 Jul 2013, 02:14 ]

When: Saturday, August 10, 2013  1:00pm until 4:00pm 

It's time to protest. The recent disgusting images of the state sanctioned violence against LGBT people in Russia has made us all a little bit more than annoyed.

The laws that have been passed recently in Russia against the promotion of Gay lifestyle is allowing wide-scale bullying and violence towards GLBT people in a way that we have not seen in our lifetime. This sort of bullying has to stop.

With calls for boycotts of Russian products coming at us thick and fast, and the call to Boycott the winter Olympics in Sochi next year, we need to put our feet onto the pavement and stand by our resolve to do something towards ending this ludicrous situation.

We want to organise a march on the Russian Embassy in Notting Hill and let the Russian law makes know that the people of the UK do not accept state sanctioned discrimination and abuse of human rights or violence towards our GLBT family.

This is just the beginning of this, suggestions on what we do and how we do it are welcome.

Please put some time aside next saturday and bring a banner, a flag your voice and a good serving of fabulousness.

Scott will be liaising with the Met Police and I will be liaising with Stonewall. If anyone has any other suggestions about how we can maximise our voice, drop me a message.

This will only work if we get a big group. Please forward to everyone so we can get a good crowd along. Please post comments on the notice board and get everyone to join, and everyone to march.
