Drop the Charges Against Gay Ugandan AIDS Activists!

"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 Trespass, 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."

I mean seriously when is Africa going to stop this nonsense regarding the aids virus and the help which is being offered? They refuse medicines and treatment for the people and it's been too many years, that they have been doing this.
