    This video has been created to call for support in showcasing a provactive new play by M.G. Yale: In the Thrice Ninth Kingdom How far would you go to find a better world? Russian folklore tells of a mythical place full of wonder and promise called the Thrice Ninth Kingdom. This new play tells the story of a group of people from around the world all linked by one shocking incident, each of them in their own way seeking to improve their lives and the lives of their fellow countrymen. Against the backdrop of increasing brutality against LGBT people, and with material based on documented cases around the world, In The Thrice Ninth Kingdom examines the persecution of the individual and the abrogation of their rights: rights to be heard, rights to choose, rights to exist. Why we believe in this project While great (and yet still troubled) strides are being made in The West for equality for all it can be easy to forget that in many parts of the world consensual same-sex relationships are criminal activities. Homosexuality is still illegal in 76 countries around the world and in 10 of these punishable by death or life imprisonment. Homophobic hate crime is on the increase in many countries across Africa, in parts of The Middle East, in Russia and other parts of Eastern Europe. In many of these countries laws are being toughened against homosexuality and same-sex marriage. In Russia new legislation “bans” gay pride marches for 100 years and currently a Bill is being considered that would ban “homosexual propaganda”. We find it disappointing that, as remarked by UN General Secretary Mr. Ban Ki-moon, it seems in some countries human rights are for some but not for all. We believe it is important to use our work to address these issues in a way that takes into account the complexities and nuances of the real world. We want to challenge our audience to think about the issues, and question what they know, or what they think they know. Why we need your help These issues deserve wider awareness. We would like to stage a showcase event of the play over 2 nights in the spring. The aim of the showcase is to raise support so that we can stage a full production later in 2013. To put on the showcase we seek to raise £2500 To donate to the project, please visit www.sponsume.com, or our website www.thriceninth.com Or if you'd like to get in contact with us, email thriceninth@gmail.com Thank you!

                The state of Washington voted yes on I-502, an initiative to tax and regulate marijuana. The video advocacy team of the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union traveled to Seattle right after the elections to find out why and how the state opted for the legal regulation of this drug. We have interviewed a couple of professionals and activists who explain us the consequences of this pioneer legislation, with special regard to the possible responses of the federal government.

                  Last year the HCLU's video advocacy group traveled to Vancouver to film about Insite, the only legally operating injecting facility in North-America. When we have arrived to Hastings Street, Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, where Insite is located, we were taken aback by the magnitude of the street drug use scene we found there. Hundreds of marginalized people live on the streets -- they are virtually homeless because I would not call those crowded staffy buldings home where they get cheap a bed and breakfast. A lot of them come from other parts of Canada, where the climat is colder and there are no services like Insite, and all the other health and social services the Portland Hotel Society provides to drug users.
