Amnesty International (Denmark), Scoop Models and Won Hundred have come together to raise awareness on the abuse of human rights in Chechnya. For several months Chechen homosexual men have been captured and tortured for their sexual orientation or in any way associated with the LGBT community. The result is a charity t-shirt (250 DKK – 30 EUR – 60 USD – 35 GBP – 350 NOK – 350 SEK) that is now exclusively available in Won Hundred’s stores and at Amnesty International’s website. All profit is kindly donated to Amnesty International.
At this point, a minimum of 40 wanted men have fled Chechnya and are living and hiding in Russia. All of them are living in constant fear from being found and tortured by the Chechen authorities. Amnesty International is working on providing them international protection and are therefore pressuring the ‘Immigration and Integration Minister’ Inger Støjberg (V) to give the persecuted men asylum in Denmark, something that e.g. France and Lithuania have already done.
