York against Homophobia in Chechnya, UK Government appeal to review LGBTQ Asylum/refugee policy. Holding hands with Pride. This is a static protest against recent events in Chechnya where Gay men are being held in concentration camps, tortured and killed. We are also appealing to our Government to urgently review their policy for LGBTQ Assylum seekers and refugees, and in solidarity with events in Holland, and with York Pride’s theme for 2017, we are asking people to arrive holding hands with pride and to leave the same way at the end. We shall update you with confirmed speakers closer to the date, if you would like to say a few words, please let us know 🙂 We shall be contacting local Radio and Press, we’ll let you know who’s coming closer to the date. We would like to see lots of placards and banners covering the 3 themes of this protest, the main theme obviously being events in Chechnya. Please share this event far and wide, Invite people along too.
