Sign the petition – Protest the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality Bill

TOP del.icio.us

I’ve just signed the Avaaz petition protesting the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda.

They’re at just over 300,000 signatures already – but their goal is to have at least 350,000 signatures by Friday, when they plan to deliver the petition to President Museveni.

This bill is easily the most intolerant, prejudicial, retrogressive piece of legislation I have seen in a long time.  Provisions include the death sentence for “repeat” offenders; imprisonment for landlords who rent to homosexuals and those who do not report people whom they believe are homosexual; and extradition capacity to prosecute gay Ugandans living overseas.

Sign the petition, and spread the word.
