Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill could be passed into law imminently. It is scheduled for debate in the coming days, paving the way for the Bill to be passed by Parliament. Activists in Uganda and across the world have managed to stop the Bill in its tracks before. Let’s do it again!
The Bill has been revived at a time of diminishing space for enjoyment of human rights in Uganda. Groups opposed to the government have been banned from holding demonstrations and those who express dissenting views on issues including oil governance, corruption, human rights, and sexual orientation and gender identity, have faced ongoing intimidation, harassment, surveillance and obstruction. We’re asking you to participate in a twitter blast directed at the Ugandan Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi. In this twitter blast, we’ll be asking him to speak out against the Bill.

The government of Uganda has previously sought to distance itself from the Bill, stating that it is not part of the government’s legislative agenda. But they have not spoken out in opposition to the Bill. Lets change that!
