Seeking support for plea to Cameroon to stop jailing gays

Published: October 3, 2012

Several activist groups in Cameroon are preparing an open letter to the President of Cameroon, Paul Biya, urging him to suspend enforcement of the Cameroonian law against homosexuality and to release seven people who are in prison because of it.

Support is welcome from other organizations outside Cameroon that promote human rights and/or are fighting against AIDS.

Delivery of the letter is scheduled for early next week, so supportive organizations should respond to the request this week (by Sunday, Oct. 7, at the latest). Reply by email to:

    Dominique Menoga, president of the Cameroon Foundation for AIDS, or Camfaids,  [domston2004 (at)] and to
    Colin Stewart, editor/publisher of the Erasing 76 Crimes blog, who is helping to coordinate the effort with Camfaids [cestewart (at)].
