    I have lost faith in the idea of the Olympics and its ideology. After the summer Olympics of 2012 there was some hope in peoples acceptance of others difference. Now governments around the world think it is ok for a marginal group to be ostracised. A games that is costing over thirty two billion and also peoples lives. The Olympics is once again been over taken by large corporations to make money no mater what.

    We need a protest this weekend. Any planned???

  5. this ‘anti-gay’ law ? :
    Criminal Code: Sexual relations and other action of a sexual nature with a person under the age of sixteen (16), Chapter 18, Article 134
    Sexual intercourse, buggery [‘muzhelozhstvo’] or lesbianism, committed by a person over 18 on a person admittedly under 14 is punishable by limitation of freedom up to three years or deprivation of freedom up to four years [R1.2].
    The second is:
    Section 6.21. Promotion of non-traditional sexual relations among minors
    1. The promotion of non-traditional sexual relations among minors expressed in the dissemination of information aimed at developing in minors non-traditional sexual facilities, at the allure of non-traditional sexual relations, at a distorted picture of the social equivalence of traditional and non-traditional sexual relations, or at the imposition of information about non-traditional sexual relationships, causing interest in such relationships,….
    Sounds fine to me !

    As some of you know In 2013 I created a couple of Postcards for Putin in regards to the Olympics and the human rights abuses in Russia. I put them up on websites hoping others would share or copy to paste onto Facebook etc. I did this one attached a couple days before the Olympics are to begin, feeling that safety is the most important message right now, a sort of prayer or energy of hope and protection.

    Thank you for viewing!
