Mayor of Reykjavík Jón Gnarr wants to formally revise or break off the capitals political and cultural relations with Moscow over the Russian capitals stance on gay rights, visir.is reports. Moscow and Reykjavík were made sister cities in 2007. A statement from the city council reads:
In light of the developments concerning the affairs of gay, bisexual and transsexual people that have taken place in Russia over the last few months, the district attorney, Human Rights Office, Office of the Mayor of Reykjavík, and City of Reykjavík chief administrative officer propose amendments or the termination of the collaboration agreement between Reykjavík and Moscow, in cooperation with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
Last month, the National Queer Organization (Samtökin 78) protested a new law in Russia, banning propaganda for homosexuality. The organization protested in front of the Russian Embassy in Reykjavík.
I predict another Cold War in a near future. #2 will be about minority rights. Await bitter propaganda and sanctions against Russia, accusing them in mishandling gay issues.
Reykjavik’s *real* sister city is Tehran, and PressTV is the fav outlet of the Allthing.
Let them try and palm their homos off over there...
Moscow will yawn and say ..... so?
Gays go to Moscow they will inhabit a Gulag!
If you’re gay in Iceland you’re waaaaay beyond help.
What is it about contemporary Scandanavians which makes them such liberal wussies?
Stop b!tching and get out fishing!
Russia just banned homosexual propaganda...Is the government of Iceland going to sever ties with Russia over this? Iceland better not forget that they received a boatload of money from Russia during their financial crisis and were it not for those ‘homophobic’ Russkies and their $, Iceland would be worse than Greece.
