The Anonymous collective has hacked and vandalized a website belonging to Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi in protest of the country’s laws concerning members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities.
In Uganda, homosexuality is officially illegal. The Ugandan parliament has also considered passing laws that would punish those who fail to report homosexuality to the police and have even considered executing members of Uganda’s LGBT community.
"Your violations of the rights of LGBT people have disgusted us. ALL people have the right to live in dignity free from the repression of someone else's political and religious beliefs. You should be PROUD of your LGBT citizens, because they clearly have more balls than you will ever have. Real Ugandan Pride is demonstrated in standing up to oppression despite fearing the abuse, torture and murder inflicted on LGBT at the hands of the corrupt government,” read a statement left by Anonymous on the Ugandan Prime Ministers website.
