Embassies supporting homosexual protests in Peru

.- Seven foreign embassies in Peru have expressed support for protests organized by homosexual activists groups demanding the legalization of same-sex unions by claiming they are being discriminated against.
 
The statement of support was signed by the Embassies of Australia, Belgium, the United States, Holland, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Sweden and the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS. 
 
The statement expressed their “support and solidarity with the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community of Peru” in their struggle against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
 
“Our governments and international organizations aim to combat such discrimination by promoting the human rights of all people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.  We call on all governments to ensure that neither sexual orientation nor gender identity be the basis for stigma and discrimination,” the statement reads.
 
The embassies also congratulated the Peruvian government for approving the 2006 Resolution of the Organization of American States on “Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity,” a document that some groups hope to use to secure the legalization of same-sex unions.
