US Gay Activist into EU Legal Battle(Brendan Fay, on the left, marrying his
partner Tom, on the right.)
Yesterday Polish president Lech Kaczynski sent a video to Polish TV where he said that he will NOT support "Lisbon Treaty" (this document will change rules in UE). He said that this "Lisbon Treaty" will push Poland to "gay marriages".1. This treaty (unfortunately) won't change anything with gay civil partnership law.2. Few months ago Lech Kaczynski said that this treaty is his great success (now he change his mind because his twin brother's party is in opposition).But this is not the end. Kaczynski used in this video photo of two gays during civil marriage ceremony. It was ceremony in Canada, Toronto. (This is not even connected with Europe). Today all Polish media wrote that one of this gays (citizen of USA) is very angry that Kaczynski use this video without his permission.
My name is Marcin Poznan and I am a reporter at the "Polish Daily News" which is a Polish-language newspaper published in New York.Recently, pictures Mr. Fay's marriage in Toronto were used without his knowledge to illustrate anti-gay statements in Polish president's public address. In my opinion this is an outrageous act by Polish authorities.I know that Mr. Fay is planning to submit an official protest at Polish consulate in New York. I am hoping you will be able to put me in touch with him. We will gladly interview him and publish the content of his written protest.I am looking forward to your help.
