- 93 days ago - allout.org
On January 10, 2014, we learned that Roger Jean-Claude Mbédé had died in Cameroon. Roger had been sentenced to 3 years in prison because he sent another man an SMS that said "I'm very much in love w/u" - in a country where it's illegal to be gay.

Signed - it should also be pointed out it is American fundamentalist groups who have been promoting these laws even though the UN had repeatedly denounced these laws as unjust.

This is terrible, I am beginning to worry with what is happening in the world. I see a tightening of laws and loss of many people;s privacy and rights often times under the excuse of protecting us- when really it is all about control, frustration and repression. The outcome for all will be disastrous in the end.
