Gays Take Castro to International Court

Thursday, September 2, 2010
The Brazilian gay rights NGO, Grupo Gay da Bahía (GGB), is filing a complaint at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague against Cuban dictator Fidel Castro for "crimes against humanity."

In this case, for crimes against Cuba's homosexual community.

According to the GGB, which is considered the oldest gay rights NGO in Latin America, Castro is responsible for the "demoralization, persecution, imprisonment in forced labor concentration camps, torture, banishment, and death of thousands of gays, transvestites and lesbians."

As part of its complaint, the GGB will hold a conference in Salvador da Bahia during March 2011 that will feature pictures and testimonies evidencing the Castro regime's homophobia.

No wonder Castro is quickly trying to message ahead of this.
