January 4th, 2012: Weekly Protest Rally Outside the Russian Consulate

3 Regions of the Russian Federation now forbid any public LGBT expression, under the homophobic pretense that it serves to “propagandize children”. Pride Prides have long been not only illegal, but met with State-sanctioned violence & lynch mobs.

Occupy Houston says no more! We invite all those who recognise that GLBT rights are human rights to join us Wednesdays, from 4pm to 6pm, at the Russian Consulate corner of Post Oak Blvd & South 610 (1333 West Loop South, Ste 1300, Houston, TX 77027). Lynchings & suppression of free speech cannot be tolerated or passively condoned.

In the immortal words written by Dr. King from his cell in the Birmingham jail: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Hope to see y’awl there.

Please RSVP via Facebook Event or via email (VeryLoudBen@gmail.com) if possible. Parking is extremely limited in the area, and so carpooling or use of METRO is recommended. This is planned as ongoing event.
