    Now that I have your attention...

    Ugandan legislators have re-introduced the dangerous Anti-Homosexuality Bill, a proposed law that would criminalize homosexuality in the country with extreme penalties. Under this proposed law, LGBT people could be killed or sentenced to life in prison, solely because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. As the bill’s author, David Bahati, has said, he believes the government of Uganda should “kill every last gay person.”

    Citibank and Barclays -- two of the largest banks in the world -- have major operations in Uganda. Citibank has nearly $300 million in assets invested Uganda, and is a major leader in a U.S. Chamber of Commerce based in Kampala, Uganda’s capital.

    Barclays is Uganda’s third largest bank, with more than 1,000 employees in the country and 51 branches throughout the nation.

    With the “Kill the Gays” bill looming in Uganda’s parliament, Citibank and Barclays have unique and necessary voices that could help stop this bill in its tracks. Their presence in Uganda is significant, and their voices in opposition to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill could have a profound impact in keeping LGBT people safe in Uganda.

    Ask Citibank and Barclays to publicly condemn Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, and send a loud message to Ugandan legislators that criminalizing homosexuality with lifetime prison sentences and the death penalty won’t be supported by major international businesses.

    I'm on the edge of losing consciousness but I still have to enjoy a few blogs before I turn my pc off.

    I'm weary about giving out my address though, I don't want a bunch of junk mail or anything. But I guess I can take a few for that petition.

    The British Government has already applied a lot of pressure in this matter, by threatening to withhold our aid to Uganda. I thought the bill had been dropped.

    Signed. So sad to see an African country going backward instead of forward on this issue (when they are already so far behind).

    Somehow I am not convinced that anyone (at Barclays Uganda or Citibank Uganda) are going to give an online petition much notice.

    A better effort might be to support any sort of an trade embargo or cut-off of financial assistance to Uganda.

    And perhaps covertly dispatching a SEAL team to make Mr. David Bahati (the sponsor of the bill) have a most interesting day.

    I'm not inclined to believe that the present government was voted for entirely by the Ugandan people (the Army and certain other groups may have a disproportionate share of influence)

    However, the cultures of central Africa do have a tendency to be deeply homophobic.

    God how med-evil do these guys sound. Very scary. You'd think with the internet the people would be better educated about the issue but if this is their main source of news no wonder there is so much homophobia

    I got this yesterday via e-mail and signed it. If Barclays doesn't doesn't do anything, I'm canceling my credit card with them and telling why. Hopefully enough people will do the same so it has some kind of impact.
