URGENTLY retract Anne's 9th April removal directions to Uganda

This petition had 8,730 supporters


I am acting on Anne's behalf as her advocate, and started this petition to protect her life.

Anne is gay, and lets out property to other gay women in her village. In December 2013 she fled violent persecution in Uganda to seek asylum in the UK.

The Ugandan 2014 Anti-Homosexuality Act was signed into Law in February this year. Gay people in Uganda face life imprisonment for homosexuality, and many of Anne's tenants who did not escape the violent mob which pursued them were beaten and killed.

Anne faces certain danger if she is forced to return to Uganda.

Anne is due to be deported to Uganda this Wednesday - 9th April.

Theresa May must URGENTLY lobby the Home Office to immediately retract Anne's removal directions, as a concerted step towards making good on her promise to address failures in the asylum process for LGBTQ seekers.

Visit www.saveanne.com to listen to an interview conducted with her via phone, from Yarl's Wood IRC, and for more information on Anne's case.
