U.S. Actions Against Uganda’s Anti-Gay Law Should Mark Beginning Of Bilateral Relationship Re-Evaluation

The Hill: Obama’s wake-up call to Uganda
Maria Burnett, senior Africa researcher at Human Rights Watch

“…While the steps taken by the U.S. [in response to Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Law] show an overdue willingness to reflect on Uganda’s deteriorating human rights situation, much remains to be done. … [T]he U.S. and other donors to Uganda will need to continue to press for free expression, assembly, and association in Uganda and take prompt action whenever the authorities violate the rights of Ugandans, LGBTI or otherwise. The announcement from the White House should be just the beginning, not the end of this difficult road” (6/25).
