🙋 59th Weekly protest

Embassy of Russia, 📍 Rua Visconde de Santarém 71, Lisboa

What to blame for the ones who hide behind civilians? Who to help this week. Homosexuality is not a disease.

You are watching news from the weekly rally at the Russian Embassy in Lisbon. Today is May 18, 14:30.

On May 15, Russian rapper Misha Mavashi posted a video on his Telegram channel of a Grad MLRS firing while on the road surrounded by cars stuck in a traffic jam. In his comments, he explained that if the Russian army is “working like this,” “it means there is a permission for that.”

The "Important Stories" media found out that this is the road near Shebekino in the Belgorod region, and the direction of fire corresponds to the territory in the north of the Kharkiv region.

On the “Khodorkovsky Live” channel, international lawyer Sergei Golubok explained that this is “the use of a human shield. The same thing that Hamas does when launching rockets from hospitals... Article 51 of the additional protocol to the Geneva Conventions clearly states this... In this case, this MLRS will be a legitimate target for a Ukrainian strike, and civilians around will be legitimately damaged."

The "Go by the Forest" project, which helps Russians not participate in this war and tries to stop it, is holding the "Run through the Forest" campaign to raise funds for their work. The first race will be on May 19. In Lisbon we start at 10 AM from the Belem Tower.

On May 23 at 7 PM in Lisbon, the Sputnik bar will host a charity screening of the documentary film “The Hardest Hour”. This is an honest film about how Ukrainians lived until February 24, 2024 and how their lives changed on that day.

The screening is in support of the Orphans Feeding Foundation's Bring Kids Back UA program. The Foundation has already been able to return 36 children illegally deported from Ukraine.

Former municipal deputy Alexei Gorinov asks for help with publicizing the fact that they are trying to fabricate a case of extremism for him. Gorinov is in prison for speaking out against holding a children's drawing competition during the war with Ukraine.

The repression that suppresses dissent and opens the door to war begins with small, vulnerable groups of people. May 17 is the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. On this day in 1990, the WHO General Assembly removed homosexuality from its list of diseases, declaring that "it is not a disease, disorder or perversion."

The English mathematician Alan Turing did a lot for the invention of the computers that we all use.

After the outbreak of World War II, Turing worked to crack the code of the German Enigma cipher machine. Winston Churchill said about it this way: “No one else made the same contribution to our victory in the war.”

In 1952, Turing was arrested for a homosexual act, which was illegal then. He was given a choice: prison or treatment, which was essentially chemical castration. He agreed to treatment. He was pardoned only posthumously, in 2013.
