Take Action for Freedom of Expression in Lithuania

LGBT people of the Baltic states are in jeopardy of having their first ever "March for Tolerance" stopped. The court suspended the march which was scheduled for May 8th on "public security grounds" even though police have promised they can ensure the safety of participants. The City Council is also considering reversing their initial decision giving a green light for the event to take place.

LGBT people in Lithuania are subject to discrimination and violence for being who they are. This is the closest they have ever come to holding a public event demanding equal rights.

Demand the Lithuanian President allow the March for Tolerance to continue in a safe and respectful manner.
