    internet polls/petitions = futility.

    Especially when the matter is in a nearly hopelessly backward third world nation with no oil or other critical resource for the West to harvest or develop.

    Funding local pro-gay politicians might be a better option?

    This is from the all out campaign:

    This Monday, the Nigerian government will be attending an important United Nations meeting in New York City. Our friend Ife and other Nigerian activists will march to the UN and call on the government to abandon the legislation.

    Would be great if this is well supported.

    Erm... hello? Nigeria is africa´s largest oil producer and in the world´s top ten and the west has a long history of trying to steal their oil....

    The answer in Nigeria, as everywhere else, is litigation.

    There is also some informal diplomatic work going on in parallel...
