Subject: 12 Hours to Stop Uganda’s Gay Death Penalty

Wow! 700,000 have signed already. We have just 12 hours before the bill is brought to the floor — let’s get to 1 million. Sign now and forward the email below!

Dear friends,

In 12 hours, Uganda could pass a law that imposes the death penalty for homosexuality. An international outcry shelved this bill last year — we urgently need to ramp up the pressure to press President Museveni to stand up for human rights and stop this brutal law. Sign below, and tell everyone:

Sign the petition!

In 12 hours, the Ugandan Parliament may vote on a brutal new law that carries the death penalty for homosexuality. Thousands of Ugandans could face execution — just for being gay.

We’ve helped stop this bill before, and we can do it again. After a massive global outcry last year, Ugandan President Museveni blocked the bill’s progress. But political unrest is mounting in Uganda, and religious extremists in Parliament are hoping confusion and violence in the streets will distract the international community from a second push to pass this hate-filled law. We can show them that the world is still watching. If we block the vote for two more days until Parliament closes, the bill will expire forever.

We have no time to lose. Almost half a million of us have already joined the call — let’s get to one million voices against Uganda’s gay death penalty in the next 12 hours

Thanks for coming. What do you think?
