URGENT ACTION NEEDED
Happy and Rainbow Holidays to us all!
Many of us are looking forward to a wonderful holiday season but before we celebrate, we are invited to take an urgent action.
On Monday, 20 December 2010, the UN General Assembly will vote on whether to include protection for LGBT people in a crucial resolution on extrajudicial executions and other unlawful killings.
We only have just 3 days to take action by:
1. Contacting our respective governments and send a clear message to them that killings of those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender are not acceptable – ever. We have to urge our representatives at the UN to vote YES to retaining Sexual Orientation and adding Gender Identity in the Resolution on Extrajudicial Executions (EJE).
2. Make the following pic as your fb profile pic (or you can make your own):
