Today’s demonstration was to show our continuing solidarity with the Russian LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community in concurrence with the college-wide ban of Coca-Cola and Procter & Gamble products. The decision to continue to protest against the Winter Olympics was made by Students’ Union Council in response to Russia’s ongoing violations of Human Rights Law and persecution of LGBTQ people.
