Ugandan Police Arrest Five For 'Promoting Homosexuality'

MuseveniSo much for that Foreign Ministry statement claim that the "Government of Uganda … will continue to guarantee equal treatment of all persons on the territory of Uganda.”

Just two days after that statement was released in an attempt to placate countries concerned about the possible human rights violations caused by the recently-passed Anti-Homosexuality Act, Ugandan police go and arrest 5 individuals - two businessmen, a teacher, and two students - for allegedly "carrying out clandestine movements in both primary and secondary schools in the district luring the pupils and students into the practice.” Because for some reason people still think that homosexuality is some dangerous lifestyle one can be "recruited" into like gangs, the Klan, or Scientology.

This is particularly bad timing for Uganda as the World Bank loan and "sinful" foreign aid sanctions that have all been put on hold may be more vital to the country's ability to function than President Yoweri Museveni originally let on.

  1. Have international arrest warrants been issued for the president and government of Uganda for their crimes against humanity?

    I want a full cessation of ALL aid to Uganda as well.

  2. 1. International arrest warrants are still pending for Bush, Chaney, Bybee, Woo, on charges of torture and breaches of International Agreements on Torture and the Geneva Conventions.

    2.Uganda tried to placate the international community with weasel words last week.
    this gives the lie to Uganda's hypocrisy.
    as long as the anti-gay laws remain all aid to Uganda should be stopped.
    Yes it will hurt people.....but even the aid for HIV prevention and treatment at clinics is being used to spy on and collect details about gay men being tested and treated.

    Uganda has entered the entered the Dark Side; only deliberate and decisive action will bring Uganda back to it senses.

    3. In the mean time how much 'aid' has found its way into Museveni's Swiss Bank Accounts ?
    He should be made to do without our "sinful aid".
