Organisation All Out (And us here at Pinkwire) are asking you to please sign the following petition in an attempt to stop the Ugandan “Kill the Gays” law.
All Out are asking you to help you with the following:
Can you please sign and share this petition demanding that Ugandan President Museveni stop the human rights violations by publicly vowing to veto the "Kill the Gays" bill?
In the next 24 hours, conservative lawmakers could move a bill that would make being LGBT in Uganda a crime punishable by death. This hateful bill is part of a pattern of the Ugandan government's violent repression of pro-democracy forces within the country - and time is running out to stop it.
They’re asking President Yoweri Museveni the following:
The world is united with human rights activists in Uganda, in asking that you publicly declare your intention to veto the "Anti-Homosexuality" bill.
Don't let this law, and the worsening human rights situation in the country, make Uganda a pariah nation in the international community.
**UPDATE: 400,000 around the world have already signed this urgent call. Add your voice now to keep up the pressure!**
So Pinkwire along with All Out ask you to please follow the link below to register your name on the petition that will be presented to President Yoweri Museveni.
It honestly only takes a few seconds and ultimately could change many people’s lives.
Please find the time to sign the petition!
