Boycott Egyptian Tourism, End LGBT Abuse
This petition had 1,194 supporters
Although sexual harassment, murder, and corruption are rampant, Egypt is instead focusing on arresting peaceful LGBT who have LEGALLY done nothing wrong and whose crime was to love a person of the same-sex.
So far, 57 people have arrested in the span of two weeks. If found guilty of homosexuality they face 3-12 years in prison.
The Egyptian government has been cracking down on LGBT, hunting them down using social media and dating apps (https://goo.gl/ZQfGDT) LGBT youth are facing horrendous physical and sexual abuse in jails.
The government's only concern is money, and has been making tremendous efforts to increase tourism and foreign investments to increase revenues which are spent on salary increases to the military to further suppress the citizens of the country.
