Nyet, Y’all: Occupy Houston Targets Russian Consulate Over Anti-Gay Stance

Occupy Houston members were set to protest at the city’s Russian consulate this afternoon over that country’s recent efforts to ban “gay propaganda.”

According to a MyFox Houston report, local Occupyers were scheduled to start their pro-free speech demonstration today at the city’s Egyptian consulate at 4:15pm local time, then move on to the Russian consulate at 4:45. Both countries, say OH, are currently gross violators of free speech.

“In the Russian Federation, a third region prepares to outlaw ‘gay propaganda’ and thus further undermines the rights of LGBT persons & freedom of speech,” said an Occupy Houston release today. “We intend to inform Houstonians of these latest threats to free speech, threats backed by the 1% via their co-option of militaries and governments worldwide.”

“We urge the citizens of Houston to contact the Russian consulate and demand that Russia respect the free speech rights of its LGBT persons,” ¬†continued¬†the release.

      The Russian Patriarchs have a lot in common with Iran’s Ayatollahs.

      Oh, I hadn’t realized that the mythical 1% was to blame for the bad things – well, ALL THE BAD THINGS.

      There’s no progress to be gained from a bunch of ineffectuals. *Hijacks their movement to reduce taxes.*
