Vid of London Action for Gay Ugandans

Dennis Hambridge, who helped organize the November 7 protest at a Ugandan government office in London, has created a vid of one of the speakers, Davis Mac-Iyalla, a gay exile from Nigeria, explaining the importance of getting into the streets for gay Ugandans:

Notice all the pedestrians passing by, paying only fleeting attention, if that, to the demonstration taking place for gay people in Uganda. If any of us needed a reminder of how too many people ignore the plight of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons around our small planet, the disinterested Londoners walking by as Mac-Iyalla talks are the reminder.

Here is the info for the American actions on Thursday, November 19:

1) WHERE: Ugandan Embassy
5911 16th Street, NW
Washington, DC

TIME: 2:00 PM – 3 PM ET

2) WHERE: Uganda Mission to the United Nations
336 E. 45th St. (Btwn 1st & 2nd Aves)
New York, NY

TIME: 12:30 pm

I appeal to everyone in those cities to make an appearance at the protests. Raise your voice to stop the potentially deadly anti-homosexual bill under consideration by Ugandan leaders.
