Greek Police Halt Activists From Hanging Banner Protesting Russia. So Protesters Regroup And Storm The Town Center
You can bet that when The White Tower was constructed in Thessaloniki, Greece in the 12th century, the builders didn’t foresee the landmark making its way into a fight for gay rights.
But when activists from Good as You(th) tried to hang a banner from the tower to protest Russia’s homophobic and transphobic laws, police were quick to halt them.
So they did what any impassioned seekers of justice would do — gather 200 strong and swarm the Russian Consulate to show they mean business.
