Rainbow Uganda activist Andrew Waiswa just published this report by followers of “Evil Pastor Ssempa” in Kampala – I think it is from this morning. Video of march on Facebook
“As i write now, there is a big demonstrating taking place in the main of Jinja town. I followed them from Kampala to cover every detail. I have pictures and videos. It has been organized by Evil Pastor Ssempa, he has called on every thug …in town and gay haters. They calling all sorts of banners and signs, calling for the killing of GAY people.” It shows the devastating effect of the proposed legislation even before a decision has been made to scrap, pass or change it. Send your support to brave activists in Uganda and oppose the legislation in any way you can from where you are.
Rainbow Uganda is civil Society Human rights and campaigning group which networks with parents of lesbian and gay children, rabbis, priests, therapists, writers, community organizers, family planning staff, sexuality educators, AIDS activists, anti-oppression educators and diversity trainers, college students and their advisors, and lesbian, gay, and bisexual activists.
Where ever you are – do what you can locally and internationally to STOP THIS campaign of HATE. A hate that will not end in Uganda and not end with LGBTI people –
In neighbouring Kenya, a mob attacked a gay wedding party at the weekend. Again the attacks on LGBTI people in Kenya is being driven by religious leaders – Muslims and Christians [Bishop Lawrence Chai of Free Apostolic Churches of Kenya (left) and Sheikh Ali Hussein of Masjid Answar Sunna Mosque] and I am convinced this is no coincidence that it is taking place alongside the Hate campaign in Uganda
