Ugandan women take off their tops to shame police

Ingrid Turinawe, a Ugandan opposition activist, was arrested by police Friday on her way to an unauthorised political rally. When she refused to get out of her car, a police officer purposefully grabbed her right breast. A video of this incident, filmed by a local television station, sparked outrage among Ugandan women’s rights activists.
 

To show solidarity with Turinawe, several female activists took off their shirts in front of the capital’s central police station on Monday. Some of them were arrested by riot police after they refused to leave.
 
The two photos were posted on Facebook by Urban Legend Kampala.
 
Turinawe is one of the organisers behind the “Walk to Work” protests, launched in 2011 to denounce Uganda’s high cost of living, notably the cost of petrol. Police have repeatedly cracked down on these protests.
 
Uganda has been led by Yoweri Museveni since 1986. He was re-elected in 2011 for five years.

life, that whеn men dіslikе
someone that can be brutal about what they saу.

- fеel the film's publicity team did not honest to the public when they avoid using the word "gay" and always showing heterosexual love scene in their advertising.
