Protest at Senegal High Commission

Gay Activists Alliance intl and OutRage have organised a Protest at the Senegal High Commission, 39, Marlos Road, London W8 6LA on Friday 23 January from 1-4pm.

The protest concerns the recent eight-year sentences, in threatening conditions, for nine men accused of ‘indecent and unnatural acts’.

Human Rights Watch said that the men are involved in HIV-prevention work, and were charged with "indecent and unnatural acts" and "forming associations of criminals." This shows how laws against homosexual conduct damage HIV- and AIDS-prevention efforts as well as the work of human rights defenders, they say.

Nearest tube is Kensington High Street
