If the Sochi Olympics take place under this ban, it will forever be clouded by the unjust treatment of the LGBT community in Russia. This petition is demanding that the 2014 Olympics be moved to a different country so that the Russian government face up to the consequences of their immoral actions. If not, the world would be condoning this issue. Not only will this give the Olympic committee bad press, sponsors will also be deterred from associating with the Olympics. This will lead to financial and reputational damage to the Olympic movement. We understand that you have passed a law to prevent discrimination in the Olympic stadiums but you have also taken away the human right of self expression. This isn't good enough. We do not want to let citizens of our world be oppressed and discriminated against. However, we believe that acknowledging the problems of Russia hosting the Olympics could save your reputation and show that, as a global community, we will not tolerate this behaviour.
