Save John 'Bosco' Nyombi Campaign Resources
As you hopefully may know, Anglican St. Judes Southsea church-member John 'Bosco' Nyombi is in danger of deportation from the UK to be stoned to death back in his homeland Uganda due to his gay sexuality and his own brother's high-profile political opposition and consequent murder.
Many churched and non-churched friends, colleagues and clients have actively supported him personally for the 7 years of his stay so far here in the UK where he has not claimed any benefits whatsoever but instead has earned a living and paid taxes working to support vulnerable adults in the community despite not being able to use his University degree level skills as a former Bank Manager.
There is a website from the Friends of Bosco to support the Save Bosco Campaign at www.savebosco.net
Bosco's plight has featured in print, radio, web and most recently TV media (BBC TV South Today - Monday 15th September 2008 - Evening bulletin).

Ugandan Human RightsUSA: Country Reports on Human Rights Practices - Uganda 2007
Homosexuals faced widespread discrimination and legal restrictions. It is illegal for homosexuals to engage in sexual acts, based on a legal provision that criminalizes "carnal acts against the order of nature" with a penalty of life imprisonment.
Public resentment against homosexuality sparked demonstrations and significant public debate during the year. The government took a strong position against the practice. A local NGO, Sexual Minorities in Uganda, protested several members' alleged harassment by police for their vocal stand against sexual discrimination
