Sign the Petition Against Uganda’s “Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009″

Dear Friend and Colleagues,

We have launched a petition against the Anti-Homosexuality Bill introduced into the Parliament of Uganda on October 14, 2009.  For years we have been disheartened and offended by the homophobic statements and actions by the Ugandan government and even its media, and, now thanks to a radical MP, a bill that would clearly violate basic human rights has been introduced and is gaining support.

The petition’s website link is pasted below, and you can learn more about the issue through a simple online news search or by visiting Human Rights Watch.  If you care about this issue, PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION HERE.  Even more, PLEASE SEND THE PETITION LINK TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN.  Help us meet our goal of 50,000 signatures.

  1. This bill is outrageous….and it’s especially offernsive when a group of US elected officials have been silent about this legisltation until recently–before that they may have been responsible for fomenting this kind of homophobia in Uganda. This bill is immoral and an affront to human rights. Stop it now!!
