Africa: US Conservatives Pushing Anti Gay Laws

Monday, July 30th, 2012

The report – “Colonizing African Values: How the U.S. Christian Right is Transforming Sexual Politics in Africa” – was presented by the Political Research Associates of Boston, a think tank that describes itself as “progressive” and focusing on what it calls attacks on civil liberties by the political and Christian right.
