EU Calls for Sanctions

The EU urges action over growing homophobia in certain African countries:

The European Parliament has adopted a resolution condemning homophobic laws in Nigeria and Uganda. 
The resolution calls on the European Commission and member states to take immediate action in regards to political cooperation, aid, and asylum, by using the Cotonou Agreement, which organises political relations between the European Union and 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries... 
MEP Ulrike Lunacek, co-president of the LGBT Intergroup, added: “These laws gravely undermine the most basic right of all: the right to life.  We know that the mere examination of these laws has already led to deaths.”
