The anti-gay movement in Ethiopia is comprised of a large coalition of Orthodox, Muslim, evangelical and Roman Catholic leaders, Christian right advocacy groups like United for life Ethiopia and other evil-minded homophobic organizations that works on many fronts to promote hate and further restrict the legislation and demand death penalty for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Ethiopia through organized and orchestrated efforts to promote thier anti-LGBT agenda at all levels of government and by espousing myths and lies about LGBT people for political and financial gain. The movement is financially and technically supported by an international homophobia agents like United for Life International, Exodus International, Lausanne Movement, Human Life International and others....
We as a higly threatened community would like to kindly request these foregin organizations directly and thier respective governments to stop funding and supporting the local homophobia/hate agents; we also we need the support of the US government, Canadian government, Norwegian government, Sewdish government and other European countries government, European Union, UN agencies and all other international human rights organizations and the international community to do everything in their power ‘to cut the funding from the above mentioned evangelical fundamentalist organization to their local counterparts like United for Life Ethiopia, and outlaw them from using the tax payers money to promote their hate agenda. However we don't oppose any form of aid and support to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia government and to other developmental organizations which are doing a good job, should continue and increased to the poverty alleviation programs of the country’.
