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.
(Note that you do not need to register for the petition site to sign this petition. After you press the green “Sign This Petition” link on the petition’s page you can simply press “Close” on the box that asks you to create an account or sign in with twitter. You will have signed the petition at that point.)
Forward the link to your friends!

Thanks to Urban Food Guy for bringing this issue to our attention.
