Boycott the Russian Winter Olympics!

In recent years there has been increased hostility against sexual minorities in Russia.  Attempts to celebrate an annual Pride Parade have been treated with the same suspicion that other countries treat terrorism and now a "non-traditional relationships propaganda" bill has passed, which will criminalize any positive references to homosexuality and any expression of gay-friendliness.

A recent push by global human rights organizations for a boycott of the Russian Olympics not only stands on moral ground but also argues that any gay athletes that compete in Russia will have to face the possibility of arrest and, possibly, torture in the hostile climate that Russian authorities have created, which is reminiscent of recent efforts in Uganda to approve the 'Kill the Gays Bill'.

I am sharing this blog in solidarity with the movement to BOYCOTT THE RUSSIAN WINTER OLYMPICS and the Russian fascist state in general.

In fact, how do you say FUCK YOU RUSSIA in Russian?  That should be our slogan!
