Love Russia, Hate Homophobia: join today’s protest at Downing Street

Love Russia, Hate Homophobia


A huge protest against anti-LGBT laws and homophobic violence in Russia is to be held opposite 10 Downing Street on this evening (September 3), two days before the G20 summit opens in St Petersburg. Protesters will be out in force to put pressure on David Cameron to raise the issue of LGBT rights in Russia during meetings with Russian president Vladimir Putin, to end the law passed last June banning same-sex ‘propaganda’ and bring the perpetrators of homophobic hate crime to justice. Supporters of Tuesday’s Day of Action, which will see similar protests in Russia and around the world, are being urged to wear red to show solidarity with all those in Russia facing discrimination due to their sexuality.

The Love Russia, Hate Homophobia protest will take place tonight from 5-8pm at Downing Street.
