Just a few days after Russian authorities cancelled PRIDE in Kiev stating that they wouldn’t be able to provide protection for the marchers, despite being able to do so the year prior. That very same evening a security camera for the gay night club Pomada captured a group of Neo Nazi’s violently attacking the club and patrons.
A few patrons of the club are milling around outside, when suddenly they all rush inside just moments before a massive throng of Neo-Nazis rush to the door and try to force their way in. The door eventually gets wrenched open and a few of the masked thugs make it inside, only to run out a few moments later. Reports stated that smoke bombs and firecrackers were thrown in and like the cowards they are they fled after it was done.
HRC should put their Russian outreach money to good use for a change and buy that bar a flamethrower and send it to the bar.
This Saturday (April 21, 2012) the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement (NSM) will be holding a rally at the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort at 3 pm. And one of the counter protest groups to greet them will be Kentucky’s own LGBT organization the Fairness Campaign,
NSM’s myriad positions of prejudice and hate include, “Only those of pure white blood may be members of the state… and no Jew or homosexual may be a member.”
Chris Hartman of the Fairness Campaign states: We can never be silent in the face of racism, The intersections of oppression are made clear by the NSM, whose prejudice spans the entire spectrum of perceived ‘difference’ in our country—race, color, religion, nation of origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and more—all the unique identities that, woven together, form the brilliant tapestry of our great nation.”
Other groups that will be joining the protest against the NSM Rally include the Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression and Standing Up for Racial Justice
If you find yourself anywhere near Frankfort, KY on Saturday please stop by and stand with the Fairness Campaign against hate and prejudice.
