Withdraw aid from Uganda if "Kill The Gay Bill is Passed"

    1. Petition by

      Bruno Dolf

      London, United Kingdom

Uganda will officially pass the ‘Kill The Gays’ bill at the end of this year despite international criticism.

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga said the anti-gay bill will become law by December since most Ugandans ‘are demanding it’.

Referring to the law as a ‘Christmas gift’ to the population, she spoke of ‘the serious threat’ posed by homosexuals.

The law will broaden the criminalization of same-sex relationships by dividing homosexuality into two categories; aggravated homosexuality and the offense of homosexuality.

‘Aggravated homosexuality’ is defined as gay acts committed by parents or authority figures, HIV-positive people, pedophiles and repeat offenders. If convicted, they will face the death penalty.

The ‘offense of homosexuality’ includes same-sex sexual acts or being in a gay relationship, and will be prosecuted by life imprisonment.

The UK as an inclusive modern society cannot allow such a law and all aid must stop and sanctions imposed including a suspension of membership of the Commonwealth.

      The Bill is now signed. Withdraw all Aid from Uganda immediately. This type of hate and discrimination needs to be addressed by the UN. The world.

      Stephen Fry's documentary did a great job in highlighting the appalling abuse of gay people around the world. I do not want my tax supporting such violent and repressive regimes.

      I am sickened by this medieval Bill and strongly object to a penny of my taxes going to support a country which imposes such fascistic laws on its people.

      The death penalty is wrong on all levels to start with, but applying it someone for just being themselves and not hurting anyone is ... well, "monstrous" doesn't even start to cover it.

      This should be important to everyone. If you're not gay, you can bet someone you care about is.
