Violent Spike.

Things aren’t looking so good in the Eastern European nation of Belarus, where there have been at least seven anti-gay attacks over the past few weeks. Many of the attacks have involved gangs of multiple men, including skin heads. Most of the victims refused to go to the police and echoed the same sentiment: “it would be a waste of time.” Here you see a picture of activist Edward Tarletski, who has been attacked three times in four years.
