Against recent events of Hate and Homofobia in Gambia sign now

====[A versгo em portugues estб mais abaixo]====



Dear Sir,

The international community of Lesbian, Gay, Bissexual, Transexual and Transgender has been taken knowledge of the recent threats to pursuit and behead homosexuals that live in Gambia and we are determinate to take forward as a public message against your government which, as we know, it is going to impact directly on tourism and the international aid help your country receives.

Gambia is a country member of the United Nations since 1965, and, as the most important leader of this nation, it is your duty to assure the human rights of those who live there, independently of the domain religion of your country. Your threats to the homosexuals, therefore, are unsustainable in face of the commitment that Gambia has set in 1965 and inadmissible from the human point of view.

The leathers of other countries around the world, beside UN itself, are already being convoked to condemn public your threats. Above it is the link that directs you to a protest-letter written by the president of IGLHRC, International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commition, which they have our support.

Yours sincerely,

Ao Presidente de Gвmbia Yahya Jammeh


Caro senhor,

A comunidade LGBTT internacional tem tomado conhecimento de suas recentes ameaзas aos homossexuais que vivem em Gвmbia e estб determinada a levб-las adiante como mensagem publicitбria contra o seu governo, o que, sabemos, irб impactar diretamente no turismo e nas ajudas internacionais que seu paнs recebe.

Gвmbia й um paнs membro da ONU desde 1965, e, como lнder mбximo dessa naзгo, й seu dever garantir os direitos humanos daqueles que aн vivem, independente da religiгo dominante no paнs. Suas ameaзas aos homossexuais, portanto, sгo insustentбveis perante o compromisso que Gвmbia firmou em 1965 e inadmissнveis do ponto de vista humano.

Os lideres de outros paнses ao redor do mundo, alйm da prуpria ONU, jб estгo sendo convocados a condenar publicamente suas ameaзas. Abaixo estб o link que te direciona para uma carta-protesto, escrita pela presidente do IGLHRC, organizaзгo internacional de direitos humanos para gays e lйsbicas que tem tambйm o nosso apoio
