I recently received a request to sign a petition. I was most distressed to learn that Uganda’s government is attempting to pass a law that may execute or imprison anyone who works to prevent HIV infection among LGBT Ugandans, who favours tolerance, or fails to report gay or transgendered people tothe authorities.
The petition is hosted by Avaaz.org and reads “We stand with citizens across Uganda who arecalling on their government to withdraw the Anti-Homosexual Bill, and to protect the universal human rights embodied in the Ugandan constitution. We urge Uganda’s leaders and donors to join us in rejecting persecution and upholding values of justice and tolerance”
