Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people are at severe risk of violence and torture in Uganda - yet airlines continue to return them. Tell Kenya Airways to refuse to transport Robert Segwanyi this Thursday - and any LGBT refugees.

      Robert's removal was deferred by the UK Home Office at the last moment tonight. This is a battle victory - but we have not won the war. Robert is not yet safe and they can try and remove him again. Your help was invaluable, both me +Robert thank you

      It just takes someone to make a responsible, human response, and I know it would not be the first time Kenya Airways had refused to carry someone being forcibly removed back to danger. Please don't assume that immigration matters are best left to the authorities. There is something you can do - and it will be too late if this opportunity is missed. Please someone alert the captain, who is the one who can make decisions about who can be in his plane. It is no good us thinking we would have made a stand about the transportation of the jews if we don't do something in these modern day situations. And we are not facing death when we take action - but Robert is certainly facing brutal treatment and possible death.
