Progress, Of A Fashion

Abby Zimet

After international pressure that may or may not have played a role,
Uganda has sort of softened proposed anti-gay laws that called for
putting to death homosexuals
who committed "aggravated homosexuality" or were "serial offenders."
Those miscreants will probably now face life in prison - with,
presumably, the same gender inmates with which they committed their
"aggravated homosexuality."

"Killing them might not be helpful." - Ethics and Integrity Minister Nsaba Buturo


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
