Four Arrested in Sochi on Gay Propaganda Law So Far
Posted February 7th, 2014 @ 6:11pm by KFBK News

Russian police have arrested four gay rights activists protesting in St. Petersburg on the opening day of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.  During today's protest, the four activists unfurled a banner quoting the Olympic Charter's ban on any form of discrimination.

A fellow activist says the protesters were quickly rounded up by police. A Russian law banning gay "propaganda'' from reaching minors has drawn strong international criticism and calls for boycott of the Sochi Games from gay activists and others.
