Aug. 21 came and went without any sign of the large protests against homosexuality that were announced in June and widely denounced since then.
That day was supposed to be “International Day Against Homosexuality,” nicknamed “Gay Hate Day” by its opponents.
The anti-homosexuality protest was proposed by the Movement of Young Cameroonians, or RJC, which announced its plans at a June 23 meeting in the Cameroonian capital of Yaoundé. The RJC said it would be joined in its protest by anti-homosexuality partners in Uganda, Liberia, Tunisia and “other African nations.”
The pro-gay group All Out (allout.org) organized a petition opposing both the protest and ongoing human rights violations in Cameroon.
The RJC said it would lead a protest march and distribute 10,000 anti-gay leaflets.
So far, there’s no news that any such protests occurred.
