SHOW OF SUPPORT: In Auckland, Adam Bennett wrote the New Zealand Parliament "has unanimously passed a motion in support of gay rights in Russia ahead of the Winter Olympics." Green MP Jan Logie moved that "the House wish our athletes competing in the Winter Olympics in Sochi well, and note Russia's recent passing of anti homosexual legislation, and ask the New Zealand Government to urge other governments and the Winter Olympics Organising Committee to protect the rights of all people in Russia regardless of their sexual orientation" (NZ HERALD, 1/30).
