Uganda Update

Ugandan gay activist and friend of Queerty Frank Mugisha sent us this update on the three AIDS activists arrested last week for protesting the government’s unhealthy anti-gay policies: “The 3 Ugandan LGBT activists that were arrested at the HIV Implementers’ Meeting in Kampala on the 4th of June 2008, have been released on bail this morning. The charges against them HAVE NOT BEEN DROPPED. They have been charged with Criminal Tresspass, under Section 302 of the Uganda Penal Code. All have pleaded “not guilty” and were released on a bail of 500,000 UGX ($310 USD)…The case was adjourned to the 20th of June 2008.” Mugisha also encourages you to send protest emails to Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni [museveni@starcom.co.ug] and Minister of Justice Dr. Edward Kiddu Makubuya [mojca@africaonline.co.ug].
