EMBRACE DIVERSITY; End Discrimination In Uganda!

A press release by the CSCHRCL - Human Rights Day (10 December 2009).  “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” is the bold opening statement of Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted on December 10, 1948 to try and ensure that the horrors of World War II - most notably the de-liberate extermination of Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals by the Nazis - would never again be visited on anybody. It is extremely ironic that the chosen theme for this year’s International Human Rights Day in Uganda is ‘Em-brace Diversity, End Discrimination in Uganda’ when parliament is currently considering a bill that rejects diversity and promotes discrimination.
