Urgent petition: Stop Uganda's 'Jail the Gays' bill

Last month, I reported that Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni planned to veto a draconian anti-gay law under which homosexual behavior would carry a penalty of life in prison.

Now, however, he appears to have changed his mind, and plans to sign the bill tomorrow.

Accordingly, the group All Out is collecting signatures on a petition in a last-minute attempt to pressure Museveni and Ugandan politicians to "stop the bill from becoming law, prevent it from being used, and protect all Ugandans from violence, arrests, and discrimination." And more.

>> Please take a stand for human rights and sign the petition here.
