Chechnya Vigil

Audio from the Chechnya Vigil held outside the Russian embassy in Wellington. The candlelight vigil was organised to show solidarity with the people who have reportedly been rounded up in Chechnya because of their gay or bisexual orientation (or perceived sexual orientation) and then detained in concentration-like prisons. Some of these people are now missing and at least three have been murdered.

A special thank you to the vigil organisers and participants for allowing us to record and share this event.
