Russian police arrest 17 LGBT "activists"

Gay rights activists protest outside the State
Duma in Moscow, June 11, 2013.
The 17 protesters merely gathered in Moscow to launch colorful balloons to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. Police moved in immediately, arresting the 17 for violating Russia's law banning LGBT propaganda. Haaretz (Israeli newspaper) reports that thus far only one has been released.
