Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper: Speak out loudly and lead the G8 to condemn Russia's persecution of gays.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. We all have heard this before. I recall a German regime singling out a minority. The world should have spoken louder then. We don't need to repeat those same mistakes.

I request Stephen Harper represent Canada's values of inclusiveness and peace by publicly condemning this frightening situation in Russia. Canada can, though its voice of reason, express the danger of these laws to the G8 leaders and, indeed, to all who can speak up.

 

This is what we're talking about:

I need your help to ensure we protect people who are singled out and institutionally hated, simply because they are a minority, different, or threaten the status quo of the majority. We've seen this before.

The fact that the Russian government has enacted these laws also means that LGBT Russian citizens can be victimized, tortured or killed by Russians' who feel they are only acting according to the governments views.

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP NOW! Please help me take action.
