Stop Giving Aid To Countries That Discriminate Against Gays

The UK currently gives £8.6 billion pounds in foreign aid each year I think this is fantastic, and a statistic we should be proud to have however there are 17 countries that I believe we should not be giving aid to. These countries do not hold our moral compass and in fact in each and every country not only is being Gay a criminal offense it is an offense that has the death penalty associated with it. The UK is giving its money to countries that kill its own people for being gay and this I think is disgusting. I will now name these countries:

1. Jamaica - £6m
2. Ghana -£78m
3. Nigeria - £158m
4. Libya - £6m
5. Sudan- £95m
6. South Sudan - £52m
7. Ethiopia – £344m (Most aid given to one country)
8. Uganda- £87m
9. Zimbabwe- £46m
10. Mozambique – £119m
11. Malawi-£61m
12. Zambia -£55m
13. Iraq - £5m
14. Gaza - £73m
15. Afghanistan – £191m
16. Pakistan – £191m
17. Bangladesh –£227m

The total amount of money given to countries that kill its people for being gay is 1.5 Billion or 17% of our total foreign aid budget. Now these are only countries that kill gay people there are far more countries that while not killing gay people imprison them or do other actions that remove their civil rights that we give foreign aid to. Our country must remove all foreign aid to countries that commit human right violations. During Apartheid in South Africa our country completely boycotted South Africa so why have we not been doing the same to other countries who commit human rights violations?

We can't tell another country what to believe but we can tell them we do not agree!
