RMT Appalled To Learn That Uganda 'Kill The Gays' Bill Could Be Discussed By Parliament Again Soon

RMT is appalled to hear that Uganda's proposed 'Kill the Gays' bill has been placed on the schedule of the country's Parliament and may be debated later today or sometime very soon.

We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Frank Mugisha, executive director of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), and all people fighting the Ugandan Parliament to get rid of this draconian anti-gay legislation.

We join others in describing the Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality bill as abhorrent and an offence to decency.

The law would broaden the criminalization of same-sex relationships and if passed into law would bring in one of the most discriminatory legal regimes in the world for sexual minorities. The already persecuted LGBT community in Uganda face further danger and LGBT rights advocates would be rounded up and imprisoned.

RMT stands with citizens across Uganda who are calling on their government to withdraw the Anti-Homosexual Bill and protect the universal human rights embodied in the Ugandan constitution, and we call on President Yoweri Museveni to renounce the Anti-Homosexuality Bill once and for all.
