Ukraine's legislature is about to vote a brand new bill into law that will make it illegal to be gay or lesbian in public. President Viktor Yanukovych has the power to stop the law, but has chosen to stay silent on the growing anti-gay sentiment.
The President says a new alliance with the European Union is his #1 Priority. World leaders have been raising this issue at high level meetings; it's time to force the President to speak out against these laws.
Will you call on President Yanukovych to condemn the laws? Every single voice of opposition makes a real difference.
TO: VIKTOR YANUKOVYCH, PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE
We citizens from across the European Union and the world urge you to denounce Law 8711. The arrival of the delegation on Justice and Security from the EU is the time to show that Ukraine takes human rights seriously.
Ukraine must take a stand against shocking displays of violence such as that perpetuated against Svyatoslav Sheremet.
