<p style="text-align:justify;">BY PAUL SCHINDLER |<strong> </strong>Doug Ireland, a journalist and activist who came of age in the New Left politics of the 1960s and whose interests and professional pursuits ranged from foreign and domestic politics to literature and philosophy, died in his East Village home on October 26.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">He was 67 years old, and, according to his longtime friend Valerie Goodman, had suffered in recent years from the after-effects of childhood polio and from diabetes and severe sciatica. Though no cause of death has yet been established, Ireland had at least two major strokes over the past several years.<b></b></p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Goodman, one of the few intimates who spent time with him in recent years while he felt too ill to leave his apartment or have company, said she was contacted by the NYPD after Ireland’s body was found in his home.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Despite chronic, at times debilitating pain and frequent hospitalizations, Ireland remained a dogged reporter and book critic in recent years, writing articles for nearly every issue of Gay City News –– where he has been the international contributing editor –– since mid-2005 and also reporting on American politics for French-language publications in France.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Gay City News is preparing a full remembrance of Doug’s life.</p>

<p><strong>Gays &amp; Muslims unite. Stop all extremists</strong></p>
<p><strong>Anti-fascists must challenge Islamists to undermine the EDL </strong></p>
<p><strong>Protest against the EDL this Saturday, 7 September, East London</strong></p>
<p>London, UK – 6 September 2013<br />
The Peter Tatchell Foundation (PTF) is supporting this Saturday’s 7 September protest against the English Defence League’s attempt to march through the Muslim heart of Tower Hamlets in East London.</p>
<div></div>
<p>Saturday’s anti-EDL protest is organised by Unite Against Fascism (UAF). It is assembling at 11am in Altab Ali Park, Whitechapel Road, London E1. INFO: <a href="http://bit.ly/19hQgo1" target="_blank"><span style="color:#0066cc;">http://bit.ly/19hQgo1</span></a></p>
<p>We are not joining the protest until 1pm. The EDL march is unlikely to arrive before 2pm or 3pm.</p>
<p>“As democrats, we do not support a police ban on the EDL. But we do support a peaceful mass ‘people power’ counter-protest to block their way. They shall not pass,” said <strong>Peter Tatchell</strong>, Director of the human rights organisation, the Peter Tatchell Foundation.</p>
<p>“We have some differences with UAF. They refuse to oppose the EDL’s political mirror image, the far right Islamist extremists who endorse terrorist attacks on civilians and who oppose the rights of women, Jews, LGBT people and Muslims who don’t conform their hard-line interpretation of Islam. These religious extremists espouse a form of clerical fascism. They are as bad as &#8211; or worse than &#8211; the EDL.</p>
<p>“The EDL claims it is against only Islamist fundamentalism and that it is not against Muslims per se. However, in reality, its supporters often demonise all Muslim people and usually make no distinction between extreme Islamists who want to establish a theocratic dictatorship, and the general Muslim population who support democracy and human rights.</p>
<p>“The failure of many anti-fascists and left-wingers to speak out against Islamist fundamentalists has created a political vacuum, which the EDL is seeking to exploit and manipulate.</p>
<p>“To be credible and effective, opponents of the EDL need to be consistent by also taking a stand against the Islamist far right. Only in this way can we offer a principled alternative to the EDL, in a manner that isolates and targets the extremists without demonising the whole Muslim population,” said Mr Tatchell.</p>
<p>His PTF colleague, <strong>Pliny Soocoormanee</strong>, added:</p>
<p>“Despite the UAF’s shortcomings, we support their protest because otherwise the EDL would have a free hand to march unopposed.</p>
<p>“That’s why the PTF is joining Saturday’s protest. But we’ll also highlight the issues the UAF won’t address: the threat from far right Islamists.</p>
<p>“In addition, we want to promote unity and solidarity across communities. We are urging: Gays and Muslims Unite! Fight All Hate!</p>
<p>“LGBT and Muslim people have a common experience of prejudice, discrimination violence. Some people are both LGBT and Muslim. They often suffer double victimisation.</p>
<p>“It is in the interests of Muslim and LGBT people to work together to defend equality for everyone and to oppose both the EDL and Islamists who preach hate and oppose human rights.</p>
<div>“The EDL and Islamist extremists are misguided with their hatred and phobias. We hope that in the future they will embrace reason and compassion. In the meantime, join us to oppose the EDL and Islamist extremism,” urged Mr Soocoormanee.</div>
<div></div>
<div><strong>BRIEFING</strong></div>
<p>There have been a series of violent attacks on Muslim targets in the last three months, most recently an apparent arson attack upon Harlow Islamic Centre in Essex on 26 August. In June, a Muswell Hill mosque and community centre were burned down and the letters ‘EDL’ were found painted on the walls. In July, three mosques in the West Midlands were subjected to bomb attacks shortly before the EDL’s Birmingham demo.</p>
<p>The EDL is a bigoted, demagogic right-wing populist movement. It includes former members of the neo-fascist National Front (NF) and British National Party (BNP).</p>
<p>Many of its supporters are racists and football hooligans. See this Guardian expose:</p>
<div> <a href="https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/may/28/english-defence-league-protest-bnp" target="_blank"><span style="color:#0066cc;">http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/may/28/english-defence-league-protest-bnp</span></a></div>
<p>Others have criminal convictions and have engaged in violent attacks on minority communities. Read this Unite Against Fascism (UAF) dossier on the EDL:</p>

<p>Most EDL protests descend into thuggery and mob violence.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify;">Saudi jailed and flogged for gay video &#8211; Sent by Doug Ireland</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The following appeared today on Al Bab, the blog on the Middle East by the former Middle East correspondent of The Guardian, Brian Whitaker (author of &#8220;Unspeakable Love: Gay and Lesbian life in the Middle East&#8221;). To see the video, click on the link to Brian&#8217;s blog:<br />

<p style="text-align:justify;">Saudi jailed and flogged for gay video:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">A 27-year-old Saudi man from Jeddah has been sentenced to 1,000 lashes, a year in jail and a fine of 5,000 riyals ($1,330) after appearing in an amateur gay video (above).</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The film, which lasts 2 minutes and 46 seconds, shows him dressed in a police uniform asking to inspect someone&#8217;s driving licence and then flirtatiously demanding &#8220;physical comfort&#8221; after saying the licence is expired. He later opens his shirt and rubs his chest, removes his cap flaunting his long hair and waves a gun suggestively. That&#8217;s as far as it goes.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Arab News says: &#8220;The video quickly spread online and through SMS&#8230; Attempts have been made to block the video from being viewed in Saudi Arabia.&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The man has not been officially named but he is named on the internet as Ahmad al-Faqih. He was arrested in January and reportedly tried in a closed court. He was charged with impersonating a police officer, committing a “general security” offence and being homosexual.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The man who filmed the video was also arrested but his fate has not been reported.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify;">Call for release of Steven Monjeza &amp; Tiwonge Chimbalanga</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">London, UK &#8211; 11 March 2010</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">OutRage! is backing Amnesty International&#8217;s appeal for letters of protest to the Malawian government over the arrest and trial of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga. They face up to 14 years jail on charges of homosexuality. The verdict in their trial is expected on Monday 22 March.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">See this sample letter, and the postal address and fax number of the Malawian President and Attorney General:<br />
<a href="http://www.amnesty.org.uk/actions_details.asp?ActionID=682&amp;LetterID=633" target="_blank"> http://www.amnesty.org.uk/actions_details.asp?ActionID=682&amp;LetterID=633</a></p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Amnesty International has adopted the two men as Prisoners of Conscience and is campaigning for their release.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;OutRage! is supporting Amnesty&#8217;s campaign. If enough people send letters of protest, it might help secure an acquittal or a less harsh sentence. Even if Tiwonge and Steven are convicted, they could win a successful appeal and be freed eventually,&#8221; said Peter Tatchell of OutRage!</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;From their prison cells, both men have urged international pressure for their release. They need lots of support and solidarity in the run-up to the trial result. Please take time to support Amnesty&#8217;s letter-writing campaign,&#8221; he said.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Amnesty International UK Director, Kate Allen, added:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga have committed no criminal offence and we adopted them as prisoners of conscience after their arrest at the end of December.

<p style="text-align:justify;">UK Scouts condemn Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">World scout movement acts on threat to gays, including scouts</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Geneva scout HQ refers concerns to Scout Association of Uganda</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">London &#8211; 1 March 2010</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The Chief Executive of the Scout Association UK, Derek Twine, has expressed opposition to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda, describing the legislation as &#8220;discriminatory&#8221; and &#8220;incompatible&#8221; with scouting values.  The Bill has been tabled by David Bahati MP, who is also Chairman of the Scout Association of Uganda.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Mr Twine&#8217;s statement (copy in full below) follows representations to the UK and international scout movement by the London-based LGBT human rights organisation, OutRage!</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Mr Twine wrote to Peter Tatchell of OutRage!, as follows:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;We find the Bill not only discriminatory and contrary to the sanctity of life, but also completely incompatible with our interpretation of the values of our worldwide Scouting Movement.&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;We have already drawn our grave concerns on this to the attention of the Secretary General of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM), and we are subsequently aware that the issues are now subject both to WOSM&#8217;s direct engagement with the Chief Scout of Uganda (Mrs Maggie Kigozi) and to ongoing global consideration by members of the World Scout Committee,&#8221; wrote Mr Twine.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">This statement from the UK Scout Association follows simultaneous direct representations by OutRage! to the World Organisation of the Scout Movement in Geneva.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;At our request, the world scout headquarters has written to the Chief Scout and the Chief Commissioner of the Uganda Scout Association concerning the Anti-Homosexuality Bill and the sponsorship of this Bill by the Chairman of the Uganda Scout Association, David Bahati MP,&#8221; reports Peter Tatchell of OutRage!</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;This swift action followed our protests against Mr Bahati to the Scout Association UK.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;Scouting is very big in Uganda and Mr Bahati derives great prestige from his position as Chairman of the Scout Association of Uganda. If we can get him removed from office it will be a significant personal blow to him. He&#8217;ll be weakened and his credibility undermined.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;OutRage! is urging the disaffiliation of the Ugandan scout organisation from the world scouting movement, as a way of adding further pressure on the Ugandan government to drop the Bill.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;Our request for disaffiliation was immediately forwarded by the Scout Association UK to the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) in Geneva.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;OutRage!&#8217;s actions are an attempt to open up a new front in the campaign against the Bill and to graphically expose the full ramifications of the proposed legislation on youth and civic organisations in Uganda, which have received little coverage so far.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;By highlighting the particular threat to LGBT scout members, we are not detracting in any way from the wider issues and consequences of Mr Bahati&#8217;s draconian legislation.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;LGBT scouts and scout leaders are, of course, only one section of the Ugandan LGBT community. All Ugandan LGBTs are at risk if this Bill becomes law. We are concerned about the danger to them all &#8211; and the threat to their straight families, friends, supporters and allies,&#8221; said Mr Tatchell.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">OutRage!&#8217;s appeal to WOSM for international scout action is being handled by Jim Sharp, Executive Director, General Management, World Scout Bureau, 5 rue du Pré-Jérôme, CH-1205 Geneva, Switzerland.</p>

Fax: (+41.22) 705 10 20</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">OutRage!&#8217;s appeal to the UK Scout Association is being addressed by Derek Twine, Chief Executive<br />

<p style="text-align:justify;">Full statement by the Scout Association UK</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">UGANDA</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Since the mid-1990s, The Scout Association has been clear and unequivocal in our equal opportunities policy and practice especially regarding sexual orientation, as befitting our role in contemporary society.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">We are recently aware that the Ugandan Parliament has received a Bill that calls for the death sentence for repeat practicing of homosexuality. This Bill is presented by a Ugandan MP (David Bahati) who is also currently the National Chairman of the Uganda Scout Association. In terms of our own policies and understandings, we find the Bill not only discriminatory and contrary to the sanctity of life, but also completely incompatible with our interpretation of the values of our worldwide Scouting Movement.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">We have already drawn our grave concerns on this to the attention of the Secretary General of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM), and we are subsequently aware that the issues are now subject both to WOSM&#8217;s direct engagement with the Chief Scout of Uganda (Mrs Maggie Kigozi) and to ongoing global consideration by members of the World Scout Committee.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">We hope that the bilateral and very positive educational and solidarity projects that have been fostered for many years between Scout Groups in the UK and Scout Groups in Uganda on such matters as health and community development will not be prejudiced or compromised by this situation; we await the formal and public response from the Scout Association of Uganda and from WOSM, whereupon we will review our position.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify;">An opponent of the rights of LGBT people wants to close the gap between Russian and International laws.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Sent by Nicolas Alexeyev.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">A Member of the Federation Council of Russia – the Upper-Chamber of the Parliament &#8211; Vasily Likhachev, known for his sharp rejection of the civil rights of sexual minorities, was appointed Deputy Minister of Justice.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">As reported Gazeta.ru on February 27, the main point in his agenda will be to close the gap between the Russian and the International laws.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">But when it comes to LGBT rights the new Deputy Minister of Justice is well known for a series of homophobic remarks.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Just two days before his appointment, Mr Likhachev publicly justified the denial by the Ministry of Justice to register ‘Marriage Equality Russia’, a gay group advocating for same-sex marriage:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;The steps taken by the representatives of the gay community, contradict with the general state of morality of the Russian society because it is not our culture and our form of relations&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">In 2006, Mr Likhachev called to use any way to stop the process of family rights of same-sex couple &#8220;Already in 7 countries of the European Union, homosexuals are allowed to adopt children. The number of countries where same-sex marriages are permitted continues to grow, that’s why in questions concerning gays, there shouldn’t be maximum permissiveness otherwise, we will go too far and the development of the world will go in the wrong direction&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">He further defended the ban of a gay pride in Moscow, arguing that &#8220;Minority affects the interests of the majority. City authorities are absolutely right that they did not follow the interest of sexual minorities. There could not be any other discussion here&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">A similar position that Mr Likhachev repeated a year later in 2007: The society should not abide by the desires of sexual minorities because homosexuals touch the interest of the majority of the people of traditional orientation,</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;The respect of human rights must not violate the moral and ethic. And if such a violation occurs, the authorities must apply the relevant laws to prevent it&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Commenting about the appointment of Mr Likhachev, Nikolai Baev, a co-organizer of Moscow Pride said:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;The new Deputy Minister of Justice does not consider the rights of homosexuals to depend on the constitution or the law of this country,</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;Moral, ethic and the interest of the majority of the population is sufficient in his eyes to discriminate against us” said Nikolai Baev.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Gay activist further expressed concerns about the future of registering LGBT groups as non-profit organization in the country.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;The Ministry of Justice denied so far to register any NGO which would officially advocate for the rights of gays and lesbians, but, with the appointment of Mr Likhachev we doubt the trend will reverse&#8221;</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;The only solution is to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights but this process takes years&#8221; ended Nikolai Baev.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify;">Religious and Nationalist Groups call for the ban of St Petersburg Pride</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Sent by Nicolas Alexeyev</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Extracts of a letter addressed to the Governor of the City.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">A group of Religious and Nationalist organizations sent a common letter to the Governor of St Petersburg, Valentina Matvienko, asking her to prohibit any gay pride march in the city.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The letter of which ‘<a href="http://www.rusk.ru/" target="_blank">rusk.ru</a>’ received a copy says:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“We are categorically against holding any public events, which in any way present a propaganda of sexual perversions.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“Any parade is a demonstration &#8211; demonstration is a form of propaganda. As a result, a gay pride is a propaganda of homosexuality.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“Love between a man and a woman exists only for one purpose – to give birth to a new life but gay pride is the propaganda of death”</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">&#8220;But why does no one remember that holding these actions grossly violates the right of the majority and is doubtful from the point of moral action?</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“After all, for the majority of our country and, in particular, for our city, homosexuality is an unacceptable deviation from the norm, a moral rejection and a disgust.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“We are constantly told that democracy is the government of majority, but it turns out that the interests of the majority would be sacrificed to a handful of people with unnatural sexual orientation”</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The statement is signed by several nationalists and religious groups among them &#8220;Intellectuals of the Orthodox Church; Russian Imperial Movement; Movement &#8220;For Faith and Fatherland&#8221;, &#8220;People&#8217;s Cathedral&#8221;, &#8220;Imperial Russia Union”.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The first official gay pride in St Petersburg is scheduled on June 26.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify;">Sent by Sunil Pant</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">KATHMANDU: Political parties in Nepal seem to be getting friendly and welcoming with sexual minorities in recent days. A few months after Bhumika Shreshta, a transsexual, joined the Nepali Congress, the ruling CPN-UML welcomed eight sexual minorities in. UML Vice Chairman Ashok Rai welcomed them amid a function at party headquarters in Balkhu on Friday. Rai said they would be recognised as zonal committee members. Newly joined UML activists include Sandhya Lama, Badri Pun, Suman Chepang, Bishnu Chepang, Sumit Paudel, Raju Silwal and Sthapa Chaudhary. “We are quite happy with your entry into our party,” said Aasta Laxmi Shakya, a UML politburo member. “Your entry will be easier in mainstreaming your agenda as well.” UML leaders KP Sharma Oli, Binda Paney and Rai were also present at the function.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify;">Russia denied registering a Gay Group campaigning for Marriage Equality</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Sent by Nicolas Alexeyev</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The Russian Ministry of Justice turned down the application of a group of gay and lesbian activists to register the first All Russia NGO dedicated to support the campaign for Same-Sex Marriage.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“Your organization cannot be registered on the basis that its aims contradict the law on NGOs and provisions of the family code which define marriage as a union between a man and a woman“  says the letter received by the board of the organization.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The board said today that “we asked today the Russian justice to reverse this illegal decision, and we will go all the way up the European Court of Human Rights if necessary”</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">‘Marriage Equality Russia’ is backed by a group of Moscow and St Petersburg LGBT groups as well as individuals, also heterosexuals.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The campaign is already running since last May when the group helped a lesbian couple to register their union in Moscow. After getting a denial from the Civil Registrar, the couple entered into Marriage last October in Toronto.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">The couple is about to introduce an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights after the Russian justice twice upheld the denial.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">One of the spouses, Irina Fedotova (Fet), a board member of ‘Marriage Equality Russia’ said about her participation in the organization:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“This campaign is not only about my marriage with Irina. We want to bring our contribution to help opening the way to marriage to other gays and lesbians and not only in Russia”.</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Nikolai Alekseev, spokesman for ‘Marriage Equality Russia’ said:</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“Russia is a country where you cannot hold a march in the streets if you openly advertize it as gay, and this is the same with registering an openly gay organization”</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“We could probably succeed in registering a NGO and remain discreet on its aim or organize a march without applying it as a gay march, but there is simply no sense in staying in the closet. Only the fight for visibility gets you in the media and help with time to make more people open about us.”</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">“Knocking at each door in secret and quietly explain what is homosexuality is not going to take us anywhere in a country of 141 million”</p>
<p style="text-align:justify;">Last October, a group of UN experts found that discrimination against individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation is “systematic”.</p>
