NO FREEDOM UNTIL WE ARE EQUAL


(from: Shane Bitney Crone
)





And this is the video that got it all started:

Friday morning we learned that Putin's courts formally banned Pride marches for 100 years in Moscow. Then the news broke that anti-gay activists are using the government's gay gag laws to sue Madonna for $10,000,000 in "moral damages" because she spoke up for gay Russians in a concert this week. If that wasn't enough, punk band Pussy Riot was sentenced just this morning to two years in prison for speaking out against the government. The judge cited "homosexual propaganda" as one reason to bring the hammer down on the three young women - two of them moms.

Enough is enough. In days Putin is going to be face to face with all the leaders of the world at a high profile, media packed United Nations Meeting in New York.  If we move fast, we can ignite a global media firestorm that embarrasses Putin's government and gets his allies and corporate backers to push him to change course - freeing Pussy Riot and ending the crackdown against LGBT Russians.

Will you take just one minute to stand up with our friends in Russia? Every voice counts and it will take a tidal wave of support to force leaders around the world to act:

It's like Putin's government is trying to make enemies. When the first bill to shut up lesbian, gay, bi and trans activists was passed in St. Petersburg, many thought it would never be enforced. To date, there's been over 75 arrests under the gay gag rule - and now the members of feminist punk band Pussy Riot are among its most famous accused.

Putin's Russia is a silenced dome - the one remaining pressure point is to publicly shame him and the actions of his government in front of the leaders of every country around the world.  With Pride officially banned, gays formally silenced in St. Petersburg and Pussy Riot shipped off to prison, Putin is counting on his critic's voices to fade away.  He is counting on us to shut up.  Our first petition against St. Petersburg's gay gag rule reached over 272,000 people - but we think we can double that.  

This goes way beyond Russia. Once the first gay gag rule passed in St. Petersburg, more were passed in regions around Russia with another proposed at the national level. Then it spread. In partnership with Ukrainian activists, we've already shelved a similar law in Ukraine, for now. And there are even more proposed in Hungary, Moldova and Lithuania.

President Putin doesn't want to be on the "world's most hated" list while he's attending cocktail parties at the UN - let's make sure he can't avoid the riot. With your voice, we can build the largest petition ever delivered to a world leader at the UN - will you sign now?

I just found out that Avon - the world's biggest cosmetic company - is selling books by an extremist in Brazil who bragged to the New York Times about being, "public enemy #1 of the gay movement." Not cool!

A firebrand evangelical pastor, Pastor Silas Malafia was recently called out by the Brazilian government for inciting violence against gays. Malafaia even threatened Brazil's top gay rights activist - calling him a "bandit" who he wants to "break in to pieces."

I just signed a letter to Avon International's new CEO, Sherilyn S. McCoy, asking her to do the right thing and drop Malafaia for good. In a country like Brazil, where hate crimes against LGBT people are through the roof, a progressive company like Avon has no excuse for supporting such a hateful character.

All Out is delivering the petition directly to Avon headquarters in NYC next week - please sign this urgent letter now and let's make sure Avon hears our message loud and clear:

Last Sunday Sergey Kondrashov was arrested in Saint Petersburg, Russia for holding up a banner that read: "A dear family friend is lesbian. My wife and I love and respect her … and her family is just as equal as ours."

On April 16th Sergey will go to court, where he could be fined and even thrown in jail for 15 days for violating St. Petersburg's new "gay propaganda" law. With lawmakers in Russia's federal legislature (the Duma) looking to extend this "gay propaganda" law to the entire country - Sergey is taking a stand. He is asking Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to denounce the absurd anti-gay law that made him a criminal, and to do everything in his power to stop this unconstitutional law from spreading nationwide.

Sergey doesn't think of himself as an activist. He's just someone who thinks that all Russians - gay or straight - should be treated equal under the law. If you believe that it should never be illegal to defend the dignity of your friends and family who are gay, lesbian bi or trans - please stand with Sergey, and sign this petition to the Russian Prime Minister.
