MOVE the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games out of Russia NOW!

    1. Petition by

      International Gay Rights

Since the passage of sweeping Anti-Homosexual Laws within Russia, the lives of homosexuals there have come under ever increasing threats. Gay men have been abused from St. Petersburg to the Urals. Right wing groups have solicited, abused, beaten, tortured and murdered Gay men with impunity, These atrocities cannot go unanswered. The very credibility and spirit of the Olympic Games is quite frankly at stake here. The Civilized world cannot overlook these atrocities any longer.

      It is conspicuous that lesbian and homosexual couples worldwide were brutally persecuted, often tortured, raped and killed, incarcerated, although they are live much happier together as heterosexual couples. Threaten these happy people worldwide men with their violence against women in heterosexual couples? This is precisely the fact. Homosexual men reject sexual violence against women and are often good friends of women. Lesbian women live together in peace with their children, without threat of domestic and sexual violence. So what is so terrible to live in lesbian and homosexual couples, I think in democratic countries should it be indifferent of sexual orientation and everyone can live the way he wants, especially the women.

      The reason I had signed the petition is that I aggressively respect the IOC and that I have the love of the sport of the famous 108 year tradition of the Olympic Games, that due to the rising discrimination of gay rights human rights in Sochi, I feel that the Sochi games be removed from Sochi, Russia, to the tird place runner up of Saltzburg, Austria, since the second runner up of S. Korea has been awarded the next Olympic Winter Games in 2018. Austria would be a better fit and handle more security and have equal footing for both specators, visitors, and Olympic participants ( Coaches and Athletes) for the reason of their safety, So I protest the removal of Sochi games from Sochi to Austria.
