Secretary Clinton: Condemn police violence at Moscow Pride
Watch the horrific video of Fmr. Lt. Dan Choi, who along with Russian and international human rights activists, was just beaten up by neo-nazis and the Russian police for the "crime" of marching peacefully in Moscow's LGBT Pride parade. Then sign Dan's open letter to Hillary Clinton (below).
The US government has so far only issued a single odd statement that appears to accept the Russian government's phony excuse about using violence to "protect" the LGBT protesters. And a State Department employee claimed last weekend that there's nothing the Obama administration can do because the entire US government is "on vacation" until Tuesday. Incredible.
There is something you can do. Please sign Dan's open letter to Secretary Clinton urging her to condemn the anti-LGBT violence in Moscow and to reaffirm the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Russia and around the world.
Dan has agreed to personally deliver this open letter with all of your signatures to the State Department upon his return to Washington. We can make a difference here, with your help.
NOTE: Unless you indicate otherwise, your name and location will be published below.
Please condemn the Russian government's shameful treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Pride participants in Moscow on May 28, 2011.
The European Court of Human Rights has already ruled against Russia for illegally banning the parade, and that was before the government's violent crackdown on American citizens and human rights advocates from all over the world.
You have been a longtime friend of the LGBT community. We need your help. Please reaffirm the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Russia and around the world.
Fmr. Lt. Dan Choi and [you]
