What an incredible week it's been! The eyes of the world have been on Russia's anti-gay crackdown, and All Out members have been driving the news. Our 350,000 strong petition has been reported on global news networks including CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera and NBC, and we've made a splash in national newspapers including Le Monde and the New York Times.
We want to build the pressure on President Putin to repeal the anti-gay law before the Winter Olympics, by getting world leaders to speak out. And, it's working.
Hours after our petition delivery in Switzerland, the Olympic Committee said they want more "clarification" from the Russian government about the anti-gay law. US President Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron have now spoken out too.
The Olympics will start in less than 200 days. We have lots to do together to make sure the pressure keeps rising. There are 1.8 million All Out members – that's lots of great minds and ideas. Can you take a few minutes to help decide what we should do together next?
Take the quick survey:
The next few weeks will be vital in shaping the direction of our campaign to help stop the anti-gay crackdown in Russia. In early September, world leaders from the leading "G20" group of nations will meet in Russia. Around the same time, the Olympic Committee will elect a new President.
There could be lots of opportunities to build pressure on President Putin and Russian leaders to stop the anti-gay crackdown.
Should we be asking more Presidents, Prime Ministers and Sports Ministers to speak out against the anti-gay crackdown?Should we up the pressure on the Olympic Committee?Is it important to target businesses that sponsor the Olympics and ask them to speak out?Should we go direct to athletes and ask them to show support for gay people within Russia during the Olympics?Click here to take the secure survey – it'll only take 3 minutes.
A few weeks ago, 3,745 members of All Out chipped in to help build a fighting fund to keep pushing back against the Russia crackdown. That means we now have lots of options open to us and need to decide on our plan.
The All Out staff team works closely with experts and activists from within Russia itself, and around the world to help make sure our plans have the best chance of success.
But as a people-powered movement for love and equality, we're only powerful when we work together to combine our time, energy and ideas.
