San Francisco Vigil for Honduran Gays and Democracy by Michael Petrelis

Today was inauguration day in Honduras, and Porfirio Lobo was sworn in as the country’s new President. To mark the occasion, gay and democracy advocates took to the street in solidarity with Hondurans. For two-hours this morning, 14 activists staged two vigils at the Honduran consulate in San Francisco’s historic Flood Building on Market Street.

The first vigil took place first, when five gay and HIV/AIDS activists went to the consulate’s office, only to find it closed for the special day. We spent half an hour in the hallway, talking with people from other offices on the 8th floor. We snapped a few pics and thought to leave a message for the workers, when they return tomorrow.

Our signs with Walter Trochez’s visage were taped to the consulate’s door, and a few were slipped under it. A small way to express our concern for the gay citizens of Honduras, especially those who’ve been murdered, and for the full protections of human rights protocols for all Hondurans.

The remainder of the morning was spent engaged in a vigil and flyer-distribution in front of the office building housing the consulate. Members of the Bay Area Latin American Solidarity Coalition, BALASC, including several seniors born in Honduras whose families have suffered harms by rightwing forces over the years. Click here to learn more about the orgs that comprise BALASC, and its multi-faceted political agenda.

This Saturday, January 30, starting at 4 pm, BALASC is holding a town hall meeting with Jose Luis Baquedano, an Honduran labor and political leader active in anti-coup efforts. That meeting is at the Center for Political Education, located at 522 Valencia Street, between 16th and 17th Streets. Stop by to learn more about pro-gay and pro-democracy forces in Honduras.

And big thanks to all the wonderful folks who came out today, on just two-days’ notice, to stand in solidarity with gay people in Honduras, and that nation’s democracy.

The “Walter Tróchez Queer Alliance” in Berlin is a grass roots group comprising of LGBTI and friends human rights activist. Our goals are: to call world attention to the dreadful situation in Honduras, raise awareness of the human rights violations and support the local LGBTI community, and prevent the establishment of a non-democratic government.

We are angry about the human rights violations in Honduras and we are saddened by the news of Walter’s death. We are concerned about German independent and local press reports that the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, a German foundation for liberal politics, which is related to a major German elected party – the German Liberal Party “FDP”, justified the coup d’état and acknowledges the authority and credibility of the current Honduran administration. The head of the FDP party is also the Minister of Foreign Department, Guido Westerwelle. We call for a thorough investigation regarding the relationship between the German FDP, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation and its support of the coup d’état.

Aufruf zu Kundgebung und Demonstration: Dienstag, 26.01.2010

15:00 Kundgebung der Honduras-Koordination vor dem Auswärtigen Amt, Werderscher Markt 1:

„Keine Anerkennung für den Staatsstreich in Honduras“

16:00 Demonstration des Queeren Bündnisses Walter Tróchez, vom Auswärtigen Amt zur FDP-Zentrale, Reinhardtstr. 14

„Gegen homo- und transphobe Gewalt in Honduras und weltweit!“

Wir, das Queere Bündnis Walter Tróchez, sind entsetzt über den Mord an dem schwulen LGBTI*- und Menschenrechtsaktivisten Walter Tróchez. Seit dem Militärputsch vom 28.6.2009 sind viele weitere Transgender, Schwule und Gegner_innen der Putschregierung ermordet worden. Unsere Solidarität und unser Mitgefühl gelten den Familienangehörigen und Freund_innen der Ermordeten. Auch wenn homo- und transphobe Gewalt in Honduras schon vor dem Putsch nicht unbekannt war, so hat doch erst der Putsch diese aktuelle Welle der Gewalt und Rechtlosigkeit in Gang gesetzt.

Wir sind empört über die Aktivitäten der deutschen FDP und ihrer politischen Stiftung, der Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung. Der Leiter des Hondurasbüros der Naumann-Stiftung, Christian Lüth, hat den Putsch von Anfang an gerechtfertigt und verharmlost. Gemeinsam sind sie bereit, die demokratische Fassade zu akzeptieren, die sich die Putschisten mit der Wahlfarce vom 29. November geben wollten, um den Putsch nachträglich zu legitimieren. Dass sich die Menschenrechtssituation in Honduras nicht verbessert, zeigt sich schon darin, dass die Putschisten sich nun selbst mit einem Amnestiegesetz vor strafrechtlicher Verfolgung schützen wollen.

Anders als FDP und Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung werden wir das nicht hinnehmen, denn Menschenrechte sind unteilbar.

Deshalb fordern wir:

1. Unterstützung der honduranischen Menschenrechtsaktivist_innen und LGBTI*! Gegen homo- und transphobe Gewalt in Honduras und weltweit!

2. Keine Anerkennung der unter undemokratischen Verhältnissen zustande gekommenen Wahl von Porfirio Lobo, dessen Amtseinführung für den 27.1. 2010 vorgesehen ist – weder durch die deutsche Bundesregierung noch durch die EU!

3. Sofortige Aufklärung der seit dem 28.6.2009 in Honduras verübten Verbrechen!

4. Beendigung der Zusammenarbeit von FDP und Naumann-Stiftung mit den Putschisten und ihren Verbündeten!

*LGBTI = Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Trans* and Intersexuals

Türkçe:

Yürüyüşe ve Eyleme Davet: 26 Ocak, Salı günü

15:00 Honduras Koordinasyon’unun Eylemi (Dışişleri Bakanlığı, Werderscher Markt 1):

«Honduras’taki Darbenin Kabul Edilecek Yanı Yok!»

16:00 Walter Tróchez Eşcinseller İttifakının Yürüyüşü (Dışişleri Bakanlığı’ndan FDP parti merkezine, Reinhardtstr. 14):

«Honduras’ta ve Bütün Dünyada Eşcinsel Düşmanı Saldırılara Son!»

İnsanhakları ve LGBTI* aktivisti eşcinsel Walter Tróchez’in öldürülmesi, bizi Walter Tróchez Eşcinseller İttifakı olarak dehşete düşürmüştür. Cuntaya karşı çıkan birçok kişi gibi, 28 Haziran 2009 darbesinden sonra birçok eşcinsel ve trans kimlikli insan öldürüldü. Honduras’ta homofobik ve transfobik saldırılar darbeden önce de bilinirken, darbeyle başlayan süreç şiddeti ve haksızlıkları artırdı. Öldürülen bireylerin yakınlarına ve arkadaşlarına başsağlığı diler, dayanışmamızın onlarla olduğunu bildiririz.

Bu bağlamda, Almanya Hür Demokrat Partisi FDP’nin ve parti vakfı Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung’un etkinlikleri bizi rahatsız etmektedir. Nauman-Stiftung’un Honduras büro başkanı Christian Lüth, darbeyi başından itibaren meşrulaştırıp darbecileri masumlaştırmaktadır. Darbeyi sonradan meşrulaştırmak için düzenlenen 29 Kasım seçimleri ilkel bir oyunken, vakfın sonuçları kabul etmesi, demokrat bir görünüş sergilemek isteyen darbecilerin ekmeğine yağ sürmek olmuştur. İnsan hakları ihlallerinin devam ettiği, darbecilerin ceza kanunundan kaçabilmek için kendilerine çıkardığı af yasasından dahi görülebilmektedir.

Biz, bu olayları FDP ve Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung gibi kabul etmeyeceğiz, insan hakları evrenseldir!

İsteklerimiz

1. Honduras insan hakları ve LGBTI* aktivistlerine acil destek olunmalı, Honduras’ta ve bütün dünyada eşcinsel düşmanı saldırılara son verilmelidir!

2. Demokratik olmayan yollarla Porfirio Lobo’yu iktidara getirecek seçim sonuçları kabul edilemez! Yemin töreni 27 Ocak 2010’da gerçekleşecek olan Lobo, ne Almanya hükümeti ne de Avrupa Birliği tarafından desteklenmelidir!

3. 28 Haziran 2009’dan sonra işlenen cinayetlerin failleri derhal bulunmalıdır!

4. FDP ve Naumann-Stiftung’un darbecilerle ve işbirlikçileriyle ortak çalışmaları derhal son bulmalıdır!

Queer demonstration for human rights and LGBTI *- in Honduras

4 pm In front of the Foreign Office, Werderscher 1 then to FDP party headquarters (following the rally of the Honduras Cordination at 3pm)

Kidnapping, arrest and the murder of human rights activists increased since the military coup in Honduras. Among them was Walter Tróchez, who was shot from a vehicle and later died in the hospital on December 13 2009. Tróchez was a victim of harassment and death threats prior to his murder. One such case occurred on July 20th 2009, which he was beaten up by police while in custody, and insulted about his sexual orientation after he attended a human rights rally against the military coup. Tróchez lead the fight for legal protection for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, trans and intersex as well dedicated himself for education about HIV and AIDS.

He took a stand against the killing of many transgender people and gay men since the military coup. Although the situation for LGBTI in Honduras was dire, it became life-threatening after the coup. Everyday life became brutal through increased military presence and increased power for right-wing political groups and religious fundamentalist. The crimes committed since the military coup, some sanctioned by national institutions through the police and military will go unpenalized and receive amnesty. The perpetrator will go free.

The de facto government will go into office on January 27th with their “President” Porfirio Lobo. We fear the recognition of Lobos by the German federal government. We carry the torch of Walter Tróchez and hope that our actions will help our LGBTI friends in Honduras.

Video: San Francisco Leaders Want End to Torture and Murder of GLBT Iraqis by Clinton Fein

Original Article: SF Gays to Pelosi: Condemn Torture of LGBT Iraqis by Michael Petrelis

My good friend and political artist Clinton Fein has made a terrific video of the May 17 solidarity rally and fundraiser for gay Iraqis at Harvey Milk Plaza, in Nancy Pelosi’s congressional district.

For me, the most relevant and emotionally moving speaker was community organizer Gary Virginia, who demanded our member of Congress, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, speak out against the torture of LGBT Iraqis.

It’s unacceptable that Pelosi, who represents the most energized gay political district in the nation, is getting a free ride about the abuse and gruesome murder of gay Iraqis from Democratic gay leaders at HRC, NGLTF and GLAAD, at a time when she is mired in controversy over torture.

I’m proud to associate with Virginia and other San Francisco voters who want our Congressmember to use her voice to bring attention to the plight of the gay community in Iraq.

After you watch Fein’s video, give Pelosi’s speaker office in DC a call and leave a message, demanding that she forcefully condemn the torture and killing of LGBT Iraqis. Let Pelosi hear your voice on behalf of justice for our brothers and sisters in Iraq. Her number is 1-202-225-0100.

SF: 100 Protest LGBT Iraqi Murders, $5K Raised, Pelosi Criticized for Silence

By Michael Petrelis

Never doubt that a handful of pissed off queens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that has ever moved the queer movement meaningfully forward.

At least one-hundred people came out in today’s heatwave over the course of a one-hour rally and participated in San Francisco’s first action for IDAHO, International Day Against Homophobia, Sunday afternoon at Harvey Milk Plaza. We rallied against the killings and torture of LGBT Iraqis, and expressed unwavering solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the U.S.-occupied country.

Thanks to the efforts of my organizing colleagues, Gary Virginia of Gays Without Borders and Jeff Cotter of Rainbow World Fund, and several members of the ever-fabulous Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, over the past week and today’s bucket brigade, slightly more than $5,000 was raised. The funds will go to direct-relief aid for the LGBT Iraqi community. Tax-deductible donations can be made at http://rainbowfund.org.

My favorite moment came at the end of the rally. Gary Virginia criticized our very own Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who, he pointed out, is also Speaker of the House, and whose district includes the possibly gayest neighborhood in all of America, was recently in Baghdad and she was silent during her visit about the LGTB murders.

“She’s said nothing about the atrocities and that has to change,” explained Virginia, to boisterous applause and cheers.

How the hell is it possible our Congressional rep is 100% mute about the murders of homosexuals in Baghdad, is the great unanswered question of the day.

Artist and activist Clinton Fein is editing and preparing a video of today’s demonstration, which will be made public tomorrow. Look for it here and on his site Annoy.com.

Let’s look at photos from today and see a few of the fine people who showed up. On behalf of the organizers, we thank you. Most photos, except where noted otherwise, were snapped by me.

Iraqi Suspected Homosexual

SF Gays Organize Rally for LGBT Iraqis

Leaders Want End to Torture and Murder
By Michael Petrelis

(San Francisco, CA) – A broad united coalition of human rights advocates and politicians will hold a spirited rally this Sunday, May 17, in solidarity with the LGBT citizens of Iraq, who face surging violence and killings. Recent reports out of Baghdad document the gruesome gluing of anuses of gay men, who are forced to swallow laxatives, leading to death by diarrhea, and come amid continuing genital mutilation of gays.

Responding to the atrocities, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community organizers will hold a demonstration to support LGBT Iraqis:

WHO: Human rights activists and elected officials

WHAT: Rally and fundraiser

WHERE: Harvey Milk Plaza, Castro and Market Streets

DATE: Sunday, May 17

TIME: 12:30 – 1:30 PM

A diverse array of leaders will speak at the rally, including Sen. Mark Leno, Supervisor Bevan Dufty, SF Police Commission President Theresa Sparks, Karen Kai of the Rainbow World Fund, Rev. Lea Brown of the Metropolitan Community Church, Debra Walker of the Harvey Milk Democratic Club, political artist Clinton Fein, and community organizers Michael Petrelis and Gary Virginia of Gays Without Borders.

There will be al so a “bucket brigade” at the rally and circulating through cafes and restaurants of the Castro soliciting donations for groups working with LGBT Iraqis. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a social advocacy organization, have donated $1,000, and will supply volunteers for the brigade.

Rainbow World Fund, a LGBT international humanitarian relief charity, is serving as the fiscal sponsor, and donations made through it are tax-deductible. The fund’s colorful and eye-catching school bus will be parked at Milk Plaza, to serve as a welcome-wagon full of banners, posters and donation buckets. Donations will be used to provide direct aid to the Iraqi LGBT community. More at http://rainbowfund.org.

Speaking for Gays Without Borders/SF, a group focused on global issues, Gary Virginia explained the motivations for the May 17 actions.

“We San Franciscans have a solemn duty to denounce anti-LGBT hatred in Iraq. Our demands to President Obama, the State Department and Congress are simple and doable – condemn the torture and slayings, investigate the human rights abuses, and create a sizeable number of asylum slots for LGBT Iraqis to enter and reside in America,” said Virginia.

San Francisco Gays Protest 6 Gay Iraqi Murders – April 6, 5 PM, Harvey Milk Plaza

By Michael Petrelis

http://mpetrelis.blogspot.com/2009/04/san-francisco-gays-protest-6-gay-iraqi.html

milkplazaOver the weekend, the Associated Press, Agence France-Presse and Reuters news wires, along with CNN, have reported on the murders of six gay men in the slums of Baghdad in recent weeks.

This is one news account of the anti-gay violence:

Residents told AFP that the bodies of two men aged 16 and 18 were found on waste ground on the outskirts of Sadr City, and that several days previously two homosexuals had been dumped in the street with their arms and legs broken.
During Friday prayers in Sadr City, a poor district of Baghdad where some two million Iraqis live, Sheikh Jassem al-Mutairi slammed what he called “new private practices by some men who dress like women, who are effeminate.

And this round-up of bad news is from the ThinkProgress site:

An Iraqi defense ministry official reports that at least six gay men have been shot dead in two separate incidents during the past 10 days in a Shia-controlled part of Baghdad. The official said today that three bullet-riddled bodies of gay individuals have been identified in Sadr City:

“Three corpses of homosexuals have been recovered in Sadr City. Two of the bodies, found on Thursday, had pieces of paper attached on which was written the word ‘Pervert.’ The third body was retrieved on Friday,” the official said.

Other dead bodies had the word “puppies” written on their chests. Puppy is a derogatory word used by residents in Sadr City to refer to gays. Witnesses told CNN that a Sadr City cafe, which was a popular gathering spot for gays, was also set on fire.

In response to the gay murders, longtime affordable housing and queer community organizer Tommi Avicolli Mecca, gay Board of Supervisors’ member Bevan Dufty and myself will be holding a speak out against the killings, and the U.S. occupation of Iraq, on Monday.

Here are the details:

WHAT: Rally and speak out over gay murders in Iraq

WHEN April 6

TIME: 5 PM

WHERE: Harvey Milk Plaza, Castro and Market Streets

Please join us for this important early evening street visibility action to call attention and object to the homo-hatred in Iraq. More details on the action to follow later today and tomorrow.

Gays Demand China Free AIDS Advocate at Olympic Torch Protest:
A press conference was supposed to be held today at 11 AM at United Nations Plaza by Tibetans living in the US, to demand China end its occupation of their country. I went to it expecting 2 or 3 dozen Tibetans and their supporters would be standing behind a microphone tree, explaining what they hope to accomplish as the Olympic torch passes through town.

What I found when I got there was a full-fledged rally, held in front of a large elevated stage near the north end of the plaza, and perhaps five-hundred protesters waving flags, chanting slogans and handing out flyers.

I hooked up with five other gay men who were there to call for the release of Chinese AIDS advocate Hu Jia, sentenced to three years in jail last week for pro-democracy advocacy, and to add our voices to the “Free Tibet” chorus.

Here are two photos of us posing for the cameras:

I’m proud a handful of us gays were present today, and will be attending other pro-Tibet events today and tomorrow, as the Olympic torch wends its way through San Francisco. And big thanks to the other gays who showed up today in support of our Tibetan friends and incarcerated AIDS advocate Hu Jia.

A taxpayer-supported “gay” celebration in San Francisco, featuring a poster portraying Jesus Christ and his disciples as “half-naked homosexual sadomasochists,” has come under heavy fire from major Christian groups demanding that California lawmakers condemn it.

The poster by organizers of the Folsom Street Fair, sponsored in part by Miller Brewing, replaces the bread and wine representing Christ’s blood and body with sadomasochistic sex toys.

“A picture’s worth a thousand words,” said Matt Barber, policy director for cultural issues with Concerned Women for America.

Barber said his group wants California’s elected officials – including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer – to “publicly condemn this unprovoked attack against Christ and His followers.”

The annual street event, which includes displays of nudity and sexual activity – is scheduled for Sept. 30.
