Russia Is Trying To Deport This Gay Reporter To Uzbekistan. Activists Say It'll Be A Death Sentence.

Source: Russia Is Trying To Deport This Gay Reporter To Uzbekistan. Activists Say It’ll Be A Death Sentence.

 

Russia is attempting to deport Ali Feruz, a reporter based in Moscow, to Uzbekistan, over the protests of activists, courts, and Feruz himself.

Feruz, who is also known as Khodoberdi Nurmatov, fled Uzbekistan in 2009 after he was tortured for two days when he refused to cooperate with the country's notorious security services. He came back to Russia — the country where he was born — in 2011. Once there, Feruz began reporting for the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, covering refugees and women's issues, as well as establishing himself as a well-known campaigner. But in 2012 Feruz had his passport stolen, leaving him without documentation after he was unable to go to the Uzbekistan embassy as he had fled the country just a year earlier. On Aug. 1, Feruz was picked up by police as he was en route to work. Later that day, a Moscow judge, ignoring Feruz's current asylum applications, ordered that the 30-year-old be deported back to Uzbekistan, saying he had been living in the country illegally.

NYPD Cop vs. Unarmed Lesbian: 'When He Had His Hands Around My Neck, I Truly Thought I Was Going To Die. I Could Not Breathe'

July 11, 2015 Stephanie Dorceant, 29, was attacked by off-duty NYPD cop Salvator Aquino, who was not in uniform. Stephanie was walking with her ex-girlfriend, Nandi Allman, in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Salvator Aquino caused several other officers to come to the scene, where they all participated in an unnecessarily violent arrest of Stephanie Dorceant. She was thrown into Rikers and arraigned on felony charges of assault as well as charges for menacing, resisting arrest, and harassment. ALL charges against her have been dropped.

Matthew’s Passion

by Tony Kushner

Aug 28 1999

When Trent Lott heard the news about the murder of Matthew Shepard, the first thoughts that flashed through his mind were all about spin. Trent Lott worried about how to keep his promise to the religious right, to speak out against the homosexual agenda, without seeming to endorse murder. Trent Lott endorses murder, of course; his party endorses murder, his party endorses discrimination against homosexuals and in doing so it endorses the ritual slaughter of homosexuals.

A lot of people worry these days about the death of civil discourse. The Pope, in his new encyclical, Fides et Ratio (Faith and Reason), laments the death of civil discourse and cites “ancient philosophers who proposed friendship as one of the most appropriate contexts for sound philosophical inquiry.” It’s more than faintly ludicrous, this plea for friendship coming from the selfsame Pope who has tried so relentlessly to stamp out dissent in churches and Catholic universities, but let’s follow the lead of the crazies who killed Matthew Shepard and take the Pope at his word.
