Publié le par catherine

Prof. Louis-Georges Tin, President of the International Committee for IDAHO (the International Day Against HOmophobia), announced the launching of a global petition campaign for a proposed United Nations resolution, in favour of the universal decriminalization of homosexuality. “With more than 70 countries in the world still making homosexuality a crime by law, and punishable by death in twelve of them, this is a legal scandal which the petition for a proposed U.N. resolution decriminalizing homosexuality gives people a concrete way to fight”, Mister Tin said. A list of hundreds of national and international organisations, well-known cultural, political and intellectual figures who have endorsed the campaign: Sir Elton John, David Bowie, Cindy Lauper, Bishop Desmond Tutu, Salman Rushdie, Meryl Streep, Victoria Abril, Bernardo Bertolucci, Jacques Delors (former President of the European Commission), Mayor Bertrand Delanoë of Paris, amongst others names. The petition can be signed online: www.idahomophobia.org
