LGBT Activists Stage Global Protests

06.02.2014 - Democracy Now!

Protests have been held in 20 cities around the world to protest Russia’s crackdown on LGBT rights. The “All Out” protests were part of a series of actions organized around Russia’s hosting of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, which begin on Friday. In London, protest organizer Marie Campbell called on the games’ corporate sponsors to speak out.

Marie Campbell: “These huge corporations are saying one thing in some countries, that they are pro-gay, they’re very friendly to their gay employees, but, you know, they’re staying very silent in other parts of the world, where their consumers and employees are suffering under anti-gay laws. And we think it’s time that was called out.”
