Police in Moldova fired tear gas at anti-LGBT protesters to keep them away from a Pride march. LGBT activists feared a repeat of violent scenes at the annual Moldova Pride solidarity march, which took place in the country’s capital Chisinau on May 19. Last year’s march was marred by clashes between anti-LGBT Orthodox Christian protesters and the LGBT activists – with the country’s President Igar Dodon publicly hitting out at the LGBT event. However, this year’s event enjoyed a significant level of police protection, preventing further clashes.
