  1. What a wretched place!

    It is time that western governments actually showed that they mean what they say and enforce their policy that foreign aid is subjected to Human Rights being established and in Uganda that LGBTs are protected and their “kill Bill” never sees the light of day.

  3. Time diplomatic sanctions were used against Uganda

    Time the right wing fundamentalist organisations from the US that are polluting Uganda and other African states are dealt with vigorously as hate groups by federal action in the US.

  4. The anti-gay Christians are behind these anti-gay attacks in Africa. Anti-gay Christians from America are spreading lies about LGBT people to get people to turn against them. What these Christians are doing is a sin but because they “think” they are right they don’t think it is a sin. These anti-gay Christians need to be stopped any way they can be stopped. LGBT people you know what to do.

  5. The United Nations are in a process of creating a large new logistics base in Entebe.

    In the long run it may help, bringing foreigners from all over the world to work there, and exposing the local population to foreign ideas.

    1. Let’s hope it has some effect in balancing the other foreign ideas – of evangelical Christianity – that are currently bedevilling Uganda and other places.

    2. There has been a base used by the UN next to Entebbe airport for several years – is this an extension or new base?

      1. To the best of my knowledge, they intend to turn it into the African version of the UNLB in Italy.

        1. They need to use it as a tool to change Uganda and its devastatingly poor human rights record – and make sure Uganda can not spin it it (or deceive themselves into thinking) that it is some kind of reward fromt he Un to Uganda!

    Haven’t the Ugandan police got anything better to do? Entebbe is well known throughout the world as the place where one of the most audacious anti-terrorism operations was carried out by Israeli special forces, freeing over 100 mainly Jewish and Israeli hostages after their Air France flight was siezed by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and a German militia group.
    Surely with Entebbe being imfamous for the raid, Ugandans would have had a lesson on what hate can do to people.

  7. The Ugandan Police don riot gear to deal with … a workshop on human rights. Says it all, really.

  8. I am very concerned by the frequency that this is happening recently but also that the activists seem to have a traitor amongst them!

    They need to be careful who they trust

    There are reports that the Anglican and Catholic churches’ leaders, along with other Christian leaders have started pushing for the kill the gays Bill to be progressed.

    I would like to hear from our Archbishop of York, who is from Uganda, with confirmation that he does not share these values.

      That jerk is probably behind the hate group….

  10. Pull the plug on government to government aid for Uganda immediately!

  11. Garry Cassell 20 Jun 2012, 3:17pm

    Can’t expect much from these police…most of them can’t read or write…they just enforce what they are told from others…Anti gay christian groups from the USA…
