On Friday, May 6, 2011, the notorious Anti-Homosexuality Bill re-emerged in Uganda’s parliament. By all accounts, the bill is being fast-tracked and could be law by the end of this week. Write to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Ugandan Ambassador to the U.S. to urge them to do everything they can to stop the bill in its tracks.
The anti-gay bill would impose the death penalty for a second conviction of consensual sex between two people of the same gender. It would also require family members, medical personnel, clergy and others to report people they suspect of being gay to the authorities or face long sentences of imprisonment. For more information about the bill, view CCR's press release from May 11, 2011.
The Center for Constitutional Rights condemns the efforts of anti-gay parliamentarians in Uganda to push through the notorious “Kill the Gays” bill as well as the government’s violent crackdown on political protests contesting worsening economic insecurity. We stand with Sexual Minorities Uganda and all friends and colleagues in Uganda who are fighting for human rights in calling for the bill to be stopped.
