I’ve signed All Out’s petition to demand Cameroon’s President Paul Biya help stop anti-gay attacks, end the law that makes it a crime to be gay, and free all people in jail because of who they love.
Eric Lembembe worked to help gay people in Cameroon. But he was recently murdered – his neck broken, his feet smashed and his face burned with an iron.It’s not an isolated incident. Cameroon’s gay people are living in terror as mob attacks, beatings and anti-gay arrests increase. And finally the government is starting to respond to international pressure.They’ve just said they will investigate police officers accused of attacking gay people. But they are still refusing to stop the anti-gay mobs and “kill the faggots” protests.President Biya is sensitive to the growing international scandal about Cameroon’s treatment of gay people. The more of us who sign the petition, the bigger the threat to President Biya’s reputation.Can you add your name to help the kind of global outcry that can help ensure President Biya takes notice and finally speaks out against mob attacks and climate of fear in Cameroon?Right now, every name can make a big difference. Please sign the petition:www.allout.org/cameroon-attacksThanks.
