Feb 01, 2008 Quickie Link: London's OutRage! Leader Blocks Pakistani Strongman's Limo
By vanrozenheim

(UK) - Britain's best-known gay activist, Peter Tatchell, confronted Pakistan's Pervez Musharraf this past weekend when the dictator arrived in London on the last leg of his European tour, blocking the general's car with his body repeatedly to protest "the suppression of democracy and human rights" by the military strongman. Tatchell, who this year marks the 40th anniversary of his start as an activist, undertook the protest against Musharraf even though he is still suffering the physical after-effects of the severe beating he received last year in Moscow when a crowd of fascist thugs, egged on by the police, violently broke up an attempted Gay Pride demonstration in front of Moscow's City Hall that Tatchell had gone to Russia to support (see this reporter's May 31-Jun. 5, 2007 article, "The Agony of Moscow Pride," a link to which appears in the web version of this article).
