Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
(ETA: Seems you can only sign from the UK; definitely share if you have followers there!)
