New Zealand supports gays in Chechnya

This petition had 54 supporters

Hi Hon. McCully
As you may have seen on the news and in public media, gay men are being incarcerated, tortured and even killed in Chechnya. While that is not the only country in the world where gay men are victimised, the notoriously homophobic, Muslim Chechnian leader Ramzan Kadyrov has reportedly vowed to exterminate all gays by Ramadan.

As foreign minister I implore you to make New Zealand's voice heard, demanding justice for men who commit no other crime than being themselves. LGBTQI folks of all descriptions in NZ look to you to voice our horror and feelings of helplessness as we see our brothers and sisters all over the world suffer.

We look forward to hearing from you
