ACT UP 2005

On my voice mail last night [Anne's voice in bold]:

Hi this is Anne Northrop and Eric Sawyer [pictured above] from ACT UP calling to urge you to attend an important demonstration that can save tens of thousands of people from HIV infection. US and Ugandan government policies have caused a dramatic 10-month long condom shortage in Uganda, the African country best known for its successful HIV prevention efforts. 32 million condoms remain locked up in Uganda's governmental warehouses while the US government ramps-up abstinence-only prevention programs. Join us on Tuesday, August 30th at 1PM for the "Unlock the Condoms" demonstration outside of Uganda's Mission to the UN - 336 E 45th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues in Manhattan. Call 646 645-5225 for information. Thank you.
