Petition Closed

Please provide safe and clean accommodation for gay and trans youth currently fleeing persecution in Jamaica's sewers.

It is shameful and morally unacceptable for a modern 'Christian country' to turn a blind eye to the plight of these vulnerable young people. Up to thirty of them, some suffering life-threatening attacks, are forced to live and sleep amongst the excrement and rats, because it's the only safe place they can find in a vehemently homophobic and transphobic society. Please sign this petition to demand the Jamaican government act to provide safe alternative accommodation.
