Amnesty International has released a statement condemning the Ugandan government for arresting three gay activists yesterday. Said one Amnesty member, “We consider these three to be prisoners of conscience, detained for their peaceful activism.” The activists were protesting the government’s refusal to help treat gay HIV patients, a far more egregious offense, we think.
