Ugandan death penalty for homosexuality?

default Ugandan death penalty for homosexuality?

Post by Compostwoman on 10th May 2011, 8:07 am

I recieved this email this morning from the Avaaz team. I have already signed, please will you think about doing likewise? Thanks

In 48 hours, the Ugandan Parliament may vote on a brutal new law that carries the death penalty for homosexuality. Thousands of Ugandans could face execution -- just for being gay.

We've helped stop this bill before, and we can do it again. After a massive global outcry last year, Ugandan President Museveni blocked the bill's progress. But political unrest is mounting in Uganda, and religious extremists in Parliament are hoping confusion and violence in the streets will distract the international community from a second push to pass this hate-filled law. We can show them that the world is still watching. If we block the vote for two more days until Parliament closes, the bill will expire forever.

We have no time to lose. Almost half a million of us have already joined the call -- let’s get to one million voices against Uganda's gay death penalty in the next 48 hours -- click to take action, then forward this email to everyone:

I am one of their members and have signed it.

I also read somewhere that homosexuals are being brought into camps in (sorry, I can't find the reference) Southeast Asia.
