Stop the Russian anti-gay law

    1. Petition by

      COC Nederland

Nederlands

Sign the petition and sign up now for the BIG PROTEST IN AMSTERDAM on April 8th!

The Russian parliament will decide on an anti-gay law in June. If the current bill passes, the law will be an excessive violation of the human rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender people (LGBT). Not only is their right to protest about to be forbidden in Russia, even showing a rainbow flag in public is likely to become punishable.

COC Netherlands wants to offer the Russian President Vladimir Putin a special present during his visit to The Netherlands on April 8: a petition that makes absolutely clear that this anti-gay bill should never come into effect.

      COC Netherlands invites you to a big protest against the Russian anti-gay law on Monday April 8. The event will take place at Oosterdok in Amsterdam, right next to the NEMO museum. The location is right in front of Scheepvaartmuseum where Russian president Putin will be having dinner at that moment.

      Dress up in one of the colors of the rainbow if you please. The rainbow is the international symbol of lesbians, gays,, bisexuals and transgenders around the globe. But Russia is about to prohibit use of the rainbow as a symbol of LGBT pride if the anti-gay law is passed.

      We'll be gathering from 6 PM on, the actual demonstration will start at 7 PM. Oosterdok is just a five minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. Part of the stage program will be Russian LGBT's speaking about the situation in their country.
