Stop Uganda's Kill The Gays Bill
Posted on: November 22 2012, 12:37 pm

URGENT: SIGN AND SHARE

A bill proposing that gay and lesbian Ugandans be executed is coming back to Uganda's Parliament - it could pass at any moment.
President Museveni once promised that he would not sign this bill into law. With pressure mounting on him to support the bill, only a massive global outcry - along with our friends in Uganda - will make him keep his promise.

Last year, we helped stop this bill in its tracks. We need to do it again. These policies will have a disastrous impact on HIV prevention and treatment programmes and impacts greatly on people's human rights!

And the AVAAZ petition: http://www.avaaz.org/en/uganda_stop_gay_death_law/?bBXVidb&v=19428
I'm normally a bit sceptical about these petitions but in thsi case I'd recommend you sign both.

Here's an update from ALL OUT:
-----
Dear Memory,

Ugandan politicians are slowing the momentum against this bill - by spreading the lie that they've removed the gay death penalty. In a global briefing with All Out yesterday, Ugandan activists Frank and Kasha told journalists around the world that the bill has not changed. They asked that we keep spreading the word to fight the bill.

Right now, we need to cover Facebook, Twitter and every friendís inbox with the news that this bill is still deadly - but we can stop it. Will you share the petition everywhere?

Share now: www.allout.org/uganda
Every time you share and tweet a new friend will see the truth. All over the world, we learn news through our friends and our social networks - this is our chance to make the news, not just read it. Spread the word that the gay death penalty still exists in Uganda's bill and ask everyone you know to spread the word too.

Uganda's parliament was just shut down for five days. We have an unexpected opportunity to build support, during a critical time to stop the bill.

Thanks for going All Out - we know that it's the only way we can beat this heinous law.

Best,
Andre, Guillaume, Hayley, Jeremy, Joe, Kate, Leandro, Mike, Pablo, Sara, Tile, and Wesley.
