Gay Activist Recalls Bosnia Attacks


Gay activist Andrejs Visockis attended last month’s gay festival in Bosnia, and was one of the ten people injured by anti-gay nationalists. He recently took to his blog to tell his tale:

I suddenly saw with the back of my eye that a group of people were running at us and a second later we were attacked from behind. I tried to turn around to defend myself and get away from them but fell and found myself surrounded by what seemed to be four young guys who started kicking the living daylights out of me from all sides. Somehow, I managed to get back on my feet and get out of the circle, so I started running all I could without looking back. As I was running, I noticed I was basically blind on my left eye and my hands were covered in blood.

This was pure terrorism and not many ordinary people in Sarajevo seemed to care.

No, we don’t imagine they do. Nor does much of the world.
