Гомофобная Россия

Ноябрь 15, 2011

Вот уже и международные новости появились. Нужна массовая реакция на данное событие, в том числе и из-за рубежа. Любая поддержка будет полезной.

News has come out that legislators for the Russian city of St Petersburg have introduced a law that is suppose to prohibit gay “propaganda”. The draft law targets what it terms “propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexualism and transgenderism to minors” and “propaganda paedophilia.” The fines that they are introducing range from 1,000 rubles for an individual to 50,000 rubles for a business or about £20 to £1,000 or $32 to $1600.

Polina Savchenko, the executive of the LGBT organization Coming Out Russia, stated:

“By combining homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality into one law with sexual crimes against minors (pedophilia), members of the Legislative Assembly indulge in gross manipulations of public opinion. Their goal – to pass an anti-democratic law, directed at severely limiting human rights in St. Petersburg.”

“In the name of ‘public interest’, members of the Legislative Assembly decided to ignore the Federal law, the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Convention for Human Rights, Council of Europe Recommendations and other decrees by international organizations, of which Russia is a member. However, no public discussions were held.

“It is also obvious that adoption of this law violates interests and rights of minors. Russia leads the world in the number of teenage suicides, and ignoring the issues of sexual orientation and gender identity can lead to tragic consequences.”

“This bill is absurd, both in terms of legal logic, and in terms of plain common sense. So what is the real goal? It is clear that adoption of this law would impose significant limitations on the activities of LGBT organizations.

“Organizers of public events cannot restrict access of minors to any open area; people under 18 can be there just by chance. Consequently, it makes any public campaigns aimed at reducing xenophobia and hate crime prevention impossible.”

Two more local legislatures have introduced similar laws. Pink News noted that “According to a 2005 poll, 43.5% of Russians supported the re-criminalisation of homosexual acts between consenting adults.”
