NL'ers in Moermansk moesten ook onjuist protocol ondertekenen, melden Russische media. Politie zei dat dit "normaal" is in Rusland.

Do people understand this is what awaits LGBT people in Russia? It is not exactly clear why the Russian police are beating these people but to think this couldn't be you could cost you're life.

*Warning video contain extreme police brutality and vviolence.

This answers our question, will visitors be safe at the Olympics? It also puts the world on notice that even should Putin put a moratorium on enforcing the gay propaganda law for the duration of the Olympics he would enforce it with a vengeance afterwards. We need to let Putin know the world will not stand for this! Please sign our petition No Pussies No Games: Boycott / Demonstrate at The Russian Winter Olympics
