Do you live in Glasgow, Perth or Coatbridge?
Through twinning partnerships towns and cities can share knowledge and participate in cultural changes. With the current ongoing situation in Chechnya these links could prove a way to influence the government in Russia to halt the state-sponsored homophobia in Chechnya. With the situation reported by the Russian LGBT Network so grave all channels of communications we have could play thier part in influencing activities in Chechnya.
We’re asking you to contact your councillor. Tell them about the situation in Chechnya and urge them to send a message to their twin council asking them to pressure the Russian Government and Chechen authorities. Pressure from within Russia could have far more impact than international pressure which has so far been resisted.
If you live in Glasgow you can find out who your councillor is and how to contact them here.
If you live in Perth/Perth & Kinross you can find out who your councillor is and how to contact them here.
If you live in Coatbridge/North Lanarkshire you can find out who your councillor is and how to contact them here.
Please be polite, you can find out more on the situation in Chechnya and what we are calling for here.
