The International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) had planned to hold its Asia conference in Java this weekend. However, protests by Muslim groups outside the hotel hosting the conference forced conference organizers to cancel the event.
The ILGA conference was booked at the Grand Mercure Hotel in the city of Surabaya, the second largest city in Indonesia. City officials had initially granted permission for the ILGA event but when about 60 protesters from the Islamic Defender Front and the Islamic Communication Forum surrounded the hotel, the police recommended cancellation.
A member of the Islamic Defender Front described the lesbian and gay participants at the conference as “moral terrorists” who should be banned from the island.
Victim, victim, who is the victim?
An interesting dilemma for the Left-wing lads. But what happens to lesbians and gays while the Victim Vigilantes try to unravel this cultural contortion of their own creation?
