The party led by Russian President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin just passed discriminatory legislation in St. Petersburg eliminating the freedom to speak publicly or assemble by lesbian, bi, gay and trans people. Now lawmakers in Moscow want to push the law nationally.
Russia is a signatory to numerous international human rights treaties - including the European Convention on Human Rights. We call on you to urgently speak out and hold Russia accountable to its treaty obligations - and stand with LGBT Russians whose ability to speak for themselves is under attack.
Activists in St. Petersburg are rushing to organize a public protest against the bill, but no matter where you are, you can stand with them. Join this call to leaders around the world to reach out to their counterparts in the Russian government - and ask them to reject this discriminatory and anti-democratic law.
