30 LGBT adults and children detained by police at St Petersburg protest

Russian Police grabbed 30 LGBT activists and at least one child loading them into a bus at Palace Square on August 4th, 2018. The LGBT people were detained for holding ‘individual protests’ in response to the city’s denial of permits for a Pride Parade.

Radio Free Europe and Reuters report that city authorities rejected their permit request, saying there was ongoing road repairs in the city and claiming that LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) actions were “harmful to the health of children.”

Have no illusions, the wannabe dictator Trump is salivating watching his pal Putin’ police detain that child. He and his AG Jeff Sessions are marshaling ‘Christian’ right-wing nationalists and known hate groups to do the same in the USA. Jeff Sessions laughs about making orphans by deporting immigrant parents while paying no mind to being brought up on charges of Child Abuse by his own church the United Methodists for doing so.

Clearly, It’s not about religion in the US or Russia and just a matter of time until Trump comes for our LGBT family too.

Trump policy of detaining children ‘may amount to torture’, UN says.

So what’s in store for the USA should Trump retain power?

Once a person is ‘detained’ in Russia they face years of close official scrutiny, often resulting in midnight abductions to face mock trials and incarceration in distant gulags.
