Beenie Man's so-called apology

03-08-2004 13:52

Dancehall artist Beenie Man's office has released a statemnt "apologising" for his hate-lyrics. However, the "apology" neither mentions who he is apologising to nor whathe is apologising for. A satisfactory apology would go along the lines of:
(1) Acknowledging the suffering he has caused and apologise to the people he has victimized.
(2) Make a positive statement affirming his respect for gay people and his condemnation of homophobic violence.
(3) Come to an agreement with the record companies to withdraw his murder songs from circulation or, if this cannot be agreed, donate his royalties from these songs to a gay organisation campaigning against homophobic violence, such as J-Flag.

Livingstone wrong on Qaradawi - again

15-07-2004 06:55

“Ken Livingstone has done great work for the gay community, but by rolling out the red carpet for Dr al-Qaradawi he is siding with an oppressor of gay Muslims in Britain and throughout the Islamic world.
