AI: Nicaragua should strike down sodomy statute

On Wednesday, several people affiliated with Amnesty International staged demonstrations outside the Nicaraguan embassies in several Latin American cities calling for the repeal of Article 204 of Nicaragua's Penal Code which says:
Those who commit crimes of sodomy or induce, promote, propagate or practice any form of copulation between people of the same sex will be subject to suffer a penalty of from one to three years in prison
Over on his blog, Dani has compiled a nice group of photos taken at demos in Peru (see above), Uruguay, Chile and Mexico as well as the text of the Amnesty International call to action (Thanks to Daniel Soto for the heads-up).
