In St. Petersburg, gay activists held a rally on the square in front of St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the building of the Legislative Assembly of the northern capital.
Yesterday in St. Petersburg held a flash mob dedicated to the International Day confront homophobia, transphobia and biphobia.
In the morning, a group with iridescent balloons activists gathered on the square in front of St. Isaac’s Cathedral and the building of the St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly. They were released into the sky dozens of colorful balloons.
Flashmob was held despite the neglect of the authorities of St. Petersburg of the constitutional right to freedom of assembly. The annual “Rainbow flashmob” was to be held under the slogan “Time to say!” May 21 at the Champ de Mars. But the Committee on Law, Order and Security of St. Petersburg Government has consulted the rally, referring to “the law Mizulina” without offering at the same time, as stated in the law, an alternative time and place for action.
Gay activists have filed a lawsuit in court and continue to attempt to coordinate the event the next day or the place, according to the organization “Exit”.
