PROTECT PRIDE MARCHERS

A courageous group of campaigners in Ukraine want to organise a gay Pride march on Saturday to call for equality for lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people. But already extremists have threatened them with violence.

Sign to call on the Minister of Interior of Ukraine to ensure Pride goes ahead, with guaranteed protection for the marchers.

A courageous group of campaigners in Ukraine want to organize a gay Pride march this Saturday. But extremists have threatened them with violence. A local activist has said that without protection, Pride could become “a massacre.”

The Pride organisers met with authorities yesterday to ask for protection for the marchers — but they haven’t got a guarantee that people will be kept safe from violent attacks.

In 2013, global pressure helped a Pride march in Ukraine go ahead safely. If we join together, we can do that again. Sign and share now - we’ll deliver the petition to the government on Friday.
