    1. WALDORF ASTORIA TO TELL GEN. MUSEVENI, ANTI-GAY DICTATOR, HE'S NOT WELCOME!

      Greetings Sisters and Brothers, comrades in the struggle for Global Justice.

      PLEASE TELL WALDORF ASTORIA TO TELL GEN. MUSEVENI, ANTI-GAY DICTATOR, HE'S NOT WELCOME

      As many of you must have heard by now, TWO Hotels in Irving, TEXAS, this week denied accommodation to Uganda's corrupt anti-Gay dictator Gen. Yoweri Museveni this when he traveled there to drum up business investment (please see The Black Star News' editorial -- the story was broken by DallasVoice.com which covers LGBT issues).

      http://www.blackstarnews.com/us-politics/justice/bravo-as-two-texas-hotels-deny-accommodation-for-gen-museveni-ugandas-corrupt

      Gen. Museveni now heads to New York City for the United Nations General Assembly.

      While in New York he normally stays at The Waldorf Astoria. Please contact the The Waldorf's spokesman Matt Zolbe at (212) 355- 3000 or send him a message via matt.zolbe@waldorfastoria.com

      Let him know that New York and the U.S. don't welcome anti-Gay presidents who incite violence against citizens of their own countries simply because they belong to the LGBT community. Tell Mr. Zolbe to let Gen. Museveni know that he's no longer welcome at The Waldorf -- now and in the future.

      Also in case you haven't yet signed the petition urging MERCURY LLC the pr company, to drop Gen. Museveni as a client please do so.

    2. Homophobic/Corrupt Sam Kutesa Is Now In Town For His New UN Job

      Milton Allimadi
      Petition Organizer

      Sisters and Brothers and comrades in the struggle for Global justice.

      As you must know by now, our Global campaign against the confirmation of Uganda's foreign minister Sam Kutesa --representative of corrupt and homophobic president Gen. Yoweri Museveni-- as President of UN General Assembly garnered world news and attention.

      In August Uganda's Constitutional court nullified the Anti-Homosexuality Act saying Parliament passed the bill which was then signed by Gen. Museveni without a quorum. We believe our campaign played a MAJOR role in pressuring the regime.

      But the narrow technical ruling means the bill can always be revived in Parliament. Gen. Museveni may try again before Uganda's 2016 presidential election. After all he has never apologized for telling CNN in February, 2014, that Gays are "disgusting" The pressure must be relentless.

      Recently the Museveni regime signed a $600,000 deal with U.S. PR firm Mercury LLC to start sugarcoating its image -- this kind of work normally involves planting cooked up fluff pieces in U.S. media.

      We already have 50 signatures on a new Petition campaign launched yesterday demanding that Mercury LLC cancel the contract and return the $600,000 Gen. Museveni paid the firm so it can be used in Uganda's hospitals where The Observer reports that people die due to lack of medicines and inability to pay. Yet Gen. Museveni bought a $50 million Gulf Stream jet for his private use, with diverted foreign aid money the U.K.'s The Daily Mail reported.

      Please sign this new Petition and also forward it to friends and relatives. Let's win back the $600,000 for the children of Uganda!

      We are also soon share articles about Sam Kutesa's corrupt business practices.

      Let's keep the pressure on the homophobic regime.

    3. Analysing The "Annullment" of Uganda's anti-LGBT Law

      Petition Organizer

      [Dear Supporters, Sam Kutesa's boss Gen. Museveni is coming to Washington on August 4 for the U.S.-Africa Leaders' Summit. The anti-LGBT law was reportedly "annulled" today, August 1, 2014 by the Constitutional Court in Uganda on a technicality, meaning Parliament can pass the law correctly next time. Please sign the new petition opposing Gen. Museveni and let everyone know about it if you have not yet signed it.

      Human rights activists are hoping to convice President Barack Obama to rescind an invitation extended to Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni to participate in the upcoming U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C., citing alleged corruption, war crimes, and the draconian antigay law Museveni signed into law in February.

      On Feb. 24 after signing anti-LGBT law, when a reporter asked Museveni whether he would meet with members of LGBT community, he said his scientists would meet them in order to draw blood from them and test their genes. He said since homosexuality was primarily due to up-bringing (nurture) society should "rehabilitate" Gay people.

      http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/06/19/us-usa-uganda-gay-announcement-idUSKBN0EU26N20140619

      (Reuters) - The United States on Thursday canceled a regional military exercise in Uganda, imposed visa restrictions, diverted funds for a health institute to another country and cut funding for a Ugandan police program in response to a law that imposes harsh penalties for homosexuality.

      Senior U.S. administration officials, speaking before the announcement by the White House, said the stepped up measures were carefully targeted at those responsible for abuses related to implementation of the anti-gay law and involved in corruption.

      The officials said the steps would not directly impact HIV/AIDS and food programs that benefit ordinary Ugandans.

      "The idea is to send a signal to perpetrators and would-be perpetrators that we are indeed monitoring, that we are indeed prepared to take measures, and that there are consequences," a senior administration official told Reuters.

    9. Memo By US Ambassador Says Kutesa's Corruption is 'Egregious'

      Milton Allimadi
      Petition Organizer

      The Jan 13, 2010 memo to State Department by U.S. ambassador to Uganda Jerry Lanier describes Kutesa's corruption as 'egregious' and that the UK wanted to restrict his visa. Yet he was allowed to become President of the General Assembly on June 11, 2014. Since the US foots most of the bills of the UN it means US taxpayer money goes to the salary of Kutesa and his staff. Please call your Member of Congress and send them the link to memo by the U.S. ambassador and ask why U.S. taxpayers' dollars should fund salary by a man identified as corrupt by U.S. ambassador to Uganda.

      This helps in not supporting dictators and their rule and helps in promoting democracy .Kuteesa is a corrupt official and on top of that he is Brigadier Muhoozi's father in law ,Muhoozi is the first son of President Museveni,these people operate for their own benefit not for Ugandans.
