Boycott the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi Russia

This petition had 307 supporters

Under Russia's gay propaganda law, any foreigner who is perceived to be promoting homosexuality would face a jail sentence of 15 days and deportation. Gay Pride parades end violent, bloody or in some cases in death every year after anti gay protestors show up to beat the shit out of the LGBT community. Russia does not deserve our support, our money or any of our attention for the 2014 Olympics. This law needs to be overturned and peoples BASIC civil rights need to be met. Gay or Straight why would ANYONE want to travel to or support a place where it is ok to treat any human being this way. If you are reading this and you do not identify as gay, I'm sure you know someone who is. Would you want that person to have to endure such pain, embarrassment and day to day torture for being who they are? Please do not watch the 2014 winter olympics or travel to Russia.
