An Olympics security officer tackled and detained a young man who held up a rainbow flag during the Olympic torch relay in Voronezh, Russia. The security officer was wearing the standard uniform: one emblazoned with a Coca-Cola logo on the pants and chest. Nobody displays the Coca-Cola logo (or the logo of any Olympic sponsor) without Coke’s explicit permission; and it's not like Coke didn't know.

Corporate sponsors have a lot to lose as their global Olympic ads roll out. Please sign the petition to make them finally speak out against Russia's ugly, religiously motivated anti-gay laws.

Putin has launched a charm offensive ahead of the Sochi Games where he almost said "some of my best friends are gay". He then went on to say that he was not homophobic. However he has also done his part in trying to link homosexuality with paedophilia. So he is an ignorant bigot.

Watch out! He's got a rainbow flag! It's too fabulous!

really Russia? I thought you were first world these days...
