Green Party Speaker Dr Derek Wall condemns arrest of Peter Tatchell
Peter, a very brave man, has I am told been arrested in Moscow during the Gay Pride protest, Pink News shot this picture of him being attacked.
Gay rights are of course human rights and like so many other issues have to be fought for in 2007 just like in the 1970s and 80s.
Russia and Eastern Europe are increasingly scary in terms of human rights.
It's shocking that Peter rather than his attackers has been arrested.
Gay rights activist Peter Tatchell has been attacked by anti-gay protesters in Moscow.
Right Said Fred singer Richard Fairbrass was also punched in the face while giving a TV interview.
Both were there to support today’s banned gay rights march in the city. The BBC reports Mr Tatchell has been arrested.
