U.S. Organizations Remain Silent while Nigerian Gays Desperate for Global Rally March 07

URGENTLY Calling on HRC, NCLR, Get EQUAL and Other U.S.A. Organizations to Start Preparing Now to Form a Coalition to Rally for Nigeria

By Melanie Nathan, February 13, 2014.

Goodluck-Jonathan-007Nigeria’s LGBT community, through The Solitary Alliance, is calling on the world to help protest against the anti-gay law that has caused major persecution and mob injustice against gays and lesbians in Nigeria. I wrote to all our USA group back on January 13 asking for noise and 2 groups out of the 8 responded saying that they were waiting to hear from Nigeria’s LGBT community first, I think in the case of Nigeria that was a big mistake and one that could also hurt Ugandan gays – which is waiting to see if Museveni will sign his assent to its pending Anti-gay Bill.

    “Arise, O Compatriots” (1978–present)
    Arise, O compatriots,
    Nigeria’s call obey
    To serve our Fatherland
    With love and strength and faith.
    The labour of our heroes past
    Shall never be in vain,
    To serve with heart and might
    One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.

    O God of creation
    Direct our noble cause
    Guide our leaders right
    Help our youth the truth to know
    In love and honesty to grow
    And living just and true
    Great lofty heights attain

    To build a nation where peace
    And justice shall reign.

    Where is the peace and justice?
