Protests all over the world against gay purges in Chechnya


Hundreds of people gathered in several international rallies to protest anti-gay purges in Chechnya.

A year ago, news first broke of the arrests of gay men in the semi-autonomous Russian region of Chechnya.

Reports emerged of men being held in secret camps in the predominantly Islamic region. They were being tortured and detained without trial.

A year on and after severe global backlash, activist groups claim the practice is still happening.

So All Out and Amnesty International called on people all over the world to protest outside Russian embassies. International protests were also held in Brasilia, Mexico City, Munich, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm and York.

Sign a petition to stop atrocities against gay men in Chechnya here.

The protest still stands.

  4. Is what is happening political "purges" in the Stalinist sense or plain old mass murders of Chechen LGBT men? It sounds like mass murder to me.
