URGENTLY Calling on HRC, NCLR, Get EQUAL and Other U.S.A. Organizations to Start Preparing Now to Form a Coalition to Rally for Nigeria

Nigeria’s LGBT community, through The Solitary Alliance, is calling on the world to help protest against the anti-gay law that has caused major persecution and mob injustice against gays and lesbians in Nigeria. I wrote to all our USA group back on January 13 asking for noise and 2 groups out of the 8 responded saying that they were waiting to hear from Nigeria’s LGBT community first, I think in the case of Nigeria that was a big mistake and one that could also hurt Ugandan gays – which is waiting to see if Museveni will sign his assent to its pending Anti-gay Bill.

This is another country on the verge, if not already, openly and “lawfully” persecuting the LGBT community!!
Sound not happen!!!
“Arise, O Compatriots” (1978–present)
Arise, O compatriots,
Nigeria’s call obey
To serve our Fatherland
With love and strength and faith.
The labour of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain,
To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.
O God of creation
Direct our noble cause
Guide our leaders right
Help our youth the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace
And justice shall reign.
Where is the peace and justice?
