Tanzania: Release Human Rights Lawyers and Activists

Target: Prof. Paramagamba Kabudi, Minister of Justice and Constitution Affairs, Tanzania

Goal: Release over a dozen human rights lawyers and activists who have been unfairly detained.

Human rights layers in Tanzania have been detained by the government for “promoting homosexuality.” However, these lawyers were only researching the government’s human rights abuses. Their arrests are Tanzania’s means of silencing them.

Lawyers weren’t the only innocent people arrested. Human rights activists have also been detained. A total of 13 lawyers and activists have been arrested for researching Tanzania’s human rights abuses against the LGBTQ community, including the closure of HIV treatment centers.

These lawyers and activists must be released immediately. They’ve been detained without warrant while only trying to protect the rights of others. Sign the petition and demand they be released.


Dear Professor Kabudi,

Over a dozen human rights lawyers and activists have been unfairly detained by your government. They’ve been charged with promoting homosexuality. They’ve been punished for protecting the rights of your nation’s most marginalized citizens.

This most recent action taken on the part of your government adds to your nation’s long list of human rights abuses. These lawyers and activists should be released now so they can get back to their jobs of protecting the men and women who live in your nation.
