Crisis in Russia: Putin just signed an anti-gay ‘propaganda’ bill that makes it illegal to say “gay”. Last week-end all participants in a march for equality in St. Petersburg were arrested and some injured. And right now major Russian organisations defending equality are on trial to fight closure.
Putin is getting away with the crackdown because there’s little international media attention and no real pressure from other world leaders.
We can work to get the crisis on the to do list of every world leader and onto the front pages of newspapers. I’ve just signed a big, global petition with All Out. Can you sign it too?
