I don't work for the state department. You can protest Fort Benning all you want. You will get a permit if you apply for it. And will be allowed to protest against it.<quoted text>
No, they didn't do anything like that. It was a peaceful protest, which stopped by the police force and the peaceful protesters were thrown to prison, and journalists who did their work where thrown to prison too. Now the court decided that they were not guilty in anything, but and so what? That's America - if the state don't care about your protest - nothing happen, but if the state don't like your protests - you will be beaten and sent to prison. Do you work in U.S. state department? Your excessive criticism against Russia and blind eye on America in this similar cases is obvious.
In Russia, Gays can never protest against the homophobia of the Orthodox Church and homophobia in society in their national capital (and no, a protest that dovetails with the aims of United Russia doesn't count).
