IBM: Denounce Ghana’s Order to ‘Arrest all Gays’
ORIGINAL MESSAGE FROM CHANGE.ORG
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Recently, IBM opened a subsidiary
in the west African country of Ghana, and even partnered with the University of Ghana
to expand their technology commitment and R&D potential. IBM hopes to expand their collaboration with Ghana, while local industry and government look forward to the tools and resources that IBM can provide; such efforts will likely bolster Ghana’s self-sufficiency, and improve their marketability on the global market in a number of industries.
This is more than discrimination; it is pure hatred and violence, and threatens the citizens of Ghana, and international tourists and business people visiting the African country.
Given IBM’s commitment to equality, it is vital that they denounce Minister Aidoo’s arrest order, and demand the end to violence and discrimination against LGBT in Ghana.
