  • Petitioning Jacques Rogge

This petition will be delivered to:

President of International Olympic Commitee
Jacques Rogge

Stop the 2014 Winter Olympic Games from being held in Sochi, Russia

    1. Curtis Bumgarner
    2. Petition by

      Curtis Bumgarner

      Chicago, IL

The whole world is watching Russia and their despicable acts and blatant hate crimes against their LGBT COMMUNITY. It's a disgrace to the nations that have fought tooth and nail to gain freedom and rights to be put back in the wrong side of history by participating in the Olympic Games set in Russia in about 200 days. I urge everyone to Google the photos that have surfaced showing the brutality and disgusting acts brought on by Russian citizens. Why should our athletes, consumers, sponsors and supporters be forced to endure this nation's pure evil and unwavering hatred of even celebrating pride or saying the word ''gay''?!?

To:
Jacques Rogge, President of International Olympic Commitee
Stop the 2014 Winter Olympic Games from being held in Sochi, Russia

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Everyone deserves acceptance and dignity. The essence of the Olympics is lost with the inclusion of bigotry.

      Because I am a proud mom of my gay daughter and what is going on in Russia should not be allowed.

      That society is falling apart. It's dangerous to have the games there.
