“It is critical for all Ugandans – the government and citizens alike – to speak out against discrimination, harassment and intimidation of anyone. That’s true no matter where they come from, what they believe, or whom they love.” 

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaking Friday in Kampala, Uganda, to the nation’s Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law, which formed to combat the so-called “Kill the Gays” bill, which has resurfaced a number of times since 2009 in the Ugandan Parliament, though it has not been passed. Clinton spoke to the coalition as she presented the group with the State Department’s 2011 Human Rights Defender Award. (Reuters)
