JAMAICA ANTI-HOMOPHOBIA STAND TO PROTEST JAMAICA ’S ANTI-GAY FORMER PRIME MINISTER AT SCHOMBURG CENTER

October 21, 2013 
Bruce Golding

New York-based LGBT activist group Jamaica Anti-Homophobia Stand, in collaboration with New York Chapter of the Tivoli Committee will protest Jamaica’s anti-gay, human rights violator former Prime Minister Orette Bruce Golding, on October 22nd in New York as he makes appearances at the Schomburg Center for  Caribbean International Network (CIN) lecture series.



Bruce Golding has violated international human rights laws in May 2010. 73-200 Jamaicans were massacre in Tivoli Gardens by the government security forces under his order, pending a USA extradition request for Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke (Jamaica’s Crime Lord), as well as for his virulent homophobic policies as prime minister, which has led to a spike in physical attacks, mob beatings, murders and other forms abuse of Jamaica's LGBT community.



Allies such as Queer Nation, ACT UP and the Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens will join in this opportunity to stage a protest Tuesday, October 22nd at the Schomburg (CIN Lecture Series) in Manhattan at 6:00 p.m. sharp.



The protests call for an investigation and prosecution of Bruce Golding by International Criminal Court (ICC) for his dastardly role in the 2010 security forces massacre of 73 to 200 Jamaicans, as well as to condemn his anti-polices and rhetoric while he was in office. Under his governance Jamaica ’s anti-gay laws, which tacitly condone attacks and murders of members of the LGBT, imprisoned gay men for 10 years with hard labor under Jamaica ’s Buggery Law and often brutalized and killed by anti-gay mobs if caught or suspected.



Since the internationally publicized brutal murder of Dwayne Jones, a 16-year-old transgender woman, on July 22, 2013, a mob called for the head of an alleged gay constable on July 31st in Kingston. On August 1st, two homosexual men were mobbed and wounded in St. Catherine. On August 10th police rescued a transgender woman after a mob gave chase in Portmore. On August 22, five gay men were trapped and barricaded by an angry mob in Green Gully Manchester. On August 23, two men were trapped by a homophobic mob for “appearing gay.” And on August 27, a 41-year-old gay man was murdered by unknown assailants. Dean Moriah was stabbed several times before his house was set on fire with him inside.



Famously, he is symbolic of Jamaica 's homophobic culture. He publicly announced his opposition to gays serving in his Cabinet" on BBC HardTalk in 2008. He has since made other homophobic statementshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cQx-zmHgg8 



The world must know that as prime minister, Bruce Golding had command responsibility for the operations and should, based on prima facie evidence, be charged with committing crimes against humanity.  He must be held accountable for Tivoli Gardens Massacre, the perpetuation of anti-gay attacks and murders and crimes against humanity during his tenure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UbGSPx486E
