Boston demonstration one of the many events around the country in response to Prayer Breakfast/Ugandan bill

Tonight, activists turned out in 20 degree blustery weather to protest the US involvement in the Ugandan anti-gay bill. Organized by Join the Impact-MA and the Anti-Violence Project of MA, the speakers included Rev. Kapya Kaoma of Political Research Associates (PRA), a progressive think tank and right-wing monitoring group. Rev. Kaoma recently published a study on the Ugandan situation and the US detailing the direct involvement in this and other African anti-gay actions of American's such as Rev. Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Orange County, CA.
