Yesterday night in Novosibirsk an organized crowd of strangers in masks made an attempt to break the action of "GORD" movement "All types of sexuality are natural!"
Bulat Barantaev, leader of this movement reports in his Live Journal that a group of aggressive strangers appeared 20 minutes after the action had begun (automated translation >>). Men in masks were tearing away banners and were throwing eggs. The "GORD"'s organizers have in advance been informing the police about threats to them but the authorities did not lend an ear and sent only three policemen to maintain the law and order.
"We thank the policemen who in spite of their small number were holding back the aggressors ...", writes Barantaev and hopes that "relevant legal persecution measures would be taken" on the grounds of breaching some articles of the Russian Criminal Code.
More information on "GORD" movement’s actions is available on its LiveJournal page (automated translation >>).
