When Canadian immigration officials decide whether to grant refugee status to Jamaican gay activist Gareth Henry. Which better take about as long as it takes to say:
Welcome to Canada Gareth !!
They should not only remember what the homophobic mob did to him and his friends in Jamaica.
They should also remember how another bloodthirsty mob reacted the day they murdered the noble and brave gay leader Brian Williamson.
By holding an obscene murder party.
On June 9, 2004, Brian Williamson, Jamaica’s leading gay rights activist, was murdered in his home, his body mutilated by multiple knife wounds. Within an hour after his body was discovered, a Human Rights Watch researcher witnessed a crowd gathered outside the crime scene. A smiling man called out, “Battyman [homosexual] he get killed!” Many others celebrated Williamson’s murder, laughing and calling out, “let’s get them one at a time,” “that’s what you get for sin,” “let’s kill all of them.” Some sang “boom bye bye,” a line from a popular Jamaican song about killing and burning gay men.
Police claimed he was killed in a robbery. But when you kill a man by stabbing and chopping him more than 70 times with a machete...it's a HATE crime.
But the police won't call it that ...... because they're CRIMINALS as well.
On June 18, 2004, a mob chased and reportedly “chopped, stabbed and stoned to death” a man perceived to be gay in Montego Bay. Several witnesses told Human Rights Watch that police participated in the abuse that ultimately led to this mob killing, first beating the man with batons and then urging others to beat him because he was homosexual.
And it's not only gay men either. Lesbians are being driven from their homes, raped, and murdered. The whole island is sewer of homophobia that needs to be quarantined from the civilized world.
That's why I was glad to see that some religious leaders are talking about organizing a global boycott.
''This is the beginning today of a global movement to stop the violence against gays in Jamaica,'' said the Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson of the Metropolitan Community Churches
Wilson said if government officials fail to take steps to stamp out what appears to be sanctioned homophobia, religious leaders would consider a boycott of Jamaican goods and tourism.
Which is excellent. Except that the boycott should begin right NOW. The Jamaicans have had more than enough time to change their murderous ways. But STILL the killing goes on.
The latest incident occurred on Jan. 29. According to local press reports and New York-based Human Rights Watch, a mob broke into a house in the central town of Mandeville and slashed the occupants inside, sending two to the hospital. One was severely injured and the other is missing and feared dead....
It's time for decent people everywhere to make the Jamaicans pay for their crimes against humanity.
You can write to your M.P and the Jamaican High Commission.
Refuse to buy anything made or grown in Jamaica.
Or hand out pamphlets like these outside travel agencies...along with frightening reports about its terrible crime and malaria problems... to warn Canadians not to go there.
Although if you can draw like Mark.....that's even better...
The main thing is to let Jamaican officials know that there is a price to pay for genocide.
That the world is waking up to the horror of Zombie Island.
That Brian Williamson.... gay hero....Jamaican hero..... LIVES.
And the murder party is OVER ...
