AIDS Group Paints Swedish Embassy Red to Protest Woman's Sex Conviction

January 16, 2003

In Paris Wednesday, about 15 activists from ACT UP/Paris threw condoms filled with red paint and poured bottles of dye on the walls and fence of the Swedish embassy. Their anger was directed at a Swedish court's Jan. 4 sentence of a one-year jail term and a 120,000 kronor (US$13,800) fine for a woman found guilty of having unprotected sex with three men without telling them she was HIV-positive. The group issued a statement saying "AIDS is a disease, not a weapon."
