The weekly protests outside the Russian Consulate continue. If you’re on facebook, you can RSVP here, but it’s definitely not required. Bring your friends and family to this peaceful demonstration of support for our queer brothers and sisters in the Russian Federation.
While the worldwide protests contributed to the delay of a ban on saying your gay in public, we still need to keep the pressure on.
As heard on KPFT Tuesday morning, Russian leaders are discussing their protests in the same language as that used against the Occupy movement here. We should embrace our non-violent brothers and sisters protesting worldwide, and this is one of the ways to do it.
Some signs & sign makings will be provided, but please bring your own as well. Parking is very limited, so be prepared to carpool or take the 35 bus.
