Budapest Pride took place on 5 July 2008. Unfortunately, violence broke out with hooligans attacking the crowd and the police had to intervene. (Photographs courtesy of Adrian, GESB.)
This was the first annual lecture organised jointly by ILGA-Europe and the International Law Association (Belgian branch) to mark the International Day against Homophobia. The lecture took place at the RoyalFlemishAcademy of Belgium for Science and the Arts in Brussels.
The participants in the 7th Moldovan Pride were precluded from marching peacefully in support of anti-discrimination legislation and tolerance in the centre of Chisinau. Police did not guarantee the right to freedom of assembly. Large aggressive coordinated groups, including extremist religious groups, members of the neo-fascist movement “New Right”, and legionnaires blocked the bus with participants, forced the door, violently hit the windows, and attempted to remove the engine, while shouting “lets get them out and beat them up”.
