From Jeff Kasanoff ’15:

On Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 1:30 P.M, Anything But Coke, a campaign we started over the break, is organizing a peaceful protest for Wesleyan students to come together to speak out against the injustices in Russia and the corporations that support them.

This past June, President Vladimir Putin of Russia signed into law a bill banning the public support of the LGBT community. Since then, violent hate crimes against the LGBT community have dramatically increased. Now, there is talk of a bill to take children away from same sex parents – who up until now have been living openly and peacefully. LGBT citizens have been forced to flee the country.
