Moscow Police Break Up Gay Pride March

The Slavic Pride march has been broken up by the Moscow police and Peter Tatchell has been arrested.

Given the fact this is a blatant attack upon human freedom, it seems almost perverse to question how this might affect the Eurovision Song Contest. But it shall certainly make for an interesting wild card in tonights final. Will any artist have the balls to make a stand, or will Eurovision pass off without incident?

Only time will tell, let us just hope that those arrested are being treated decently and are freed soon. Write in to your EBU television station and ask for their reaction!!

  1. Now that Peter Tatchell has been released, it occurs to me to wonder whether it is only the foreigners who have been released - presumably they or their governments might make a noise. What about the Russians?
