On the 21.03.10 Peter Tatchell was talking in front of the Commonweath asking why the Commonweath was doing nothing to stop the criminalisation of same-sex relations in 40 Commonweath countries. The LGBT community and OutRage are asking for the release of Malawi gay couple Tiwonge and Steven and an end of same-sex relations criminalisation in all the Commonweath countries.
