Moscow Gay Pride Parade Attacked
Moscow, Russia, 27/05/2007..A plain clothes policeman punches a masked nationalist in the face after he spat on a lesbian demonstrator at Moscow's second attempted Gay Pride parade. The parade had already been banned by Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov on the grounds that it would provoke violence, but gay activists attempted to demonstrate in defiance of the ban, and many were beaten by counter demonstrators and arrested by police.
