Free Linda Nakibbuka
Friday, June 1, 2012. EveryOne Group supports the campaign launched
by the Movement for Justice, for the life of Linda Nakibbuka, an Ugandan
lesbian at risk of deportation from United Kingdom to Uganda, a nation
where both female and homosexual activity is illegal. Here, the
petition promoted by the Movement for Justice.
Stop deporting Linda Nakibuka to persecution and death. Linda, 22
came to the UK as a student to be able to develop herself in a country
where for the 1st time she could really be herself. She is known to be
gay in Uganda where homosexuality is illegal.
Linda was attacked, sexually harassed and beaten by people who think homosexuality is a sin and contiguous.
11 April 2012, Linda went to the UK Board Agency to seek for asylum
however, despite her visa still being valid, she was put in detention,
placed on fast tract and her claim was dismissed by the UKBA and the
immigration Judge despite the fact that she had witnesses who knew her
from Uganda and as well LGBT friends in the UK.
Linda’s life is deteriorating every day. Detention doctors have
written to the UKBA regards to the torture Linda went through but all
has fallen on deaf ear.
The UK Supreme Court overturned the
racist, homophobic policy of sending Lesbian/Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender to their death on 7th July 2010.
However little has changed
has the UKBA has devised another trick of telling LGBT asylum seekers
that they are not gay hence forth getting a pretext to deport them.
We cannot let this happen be a part of the change by signing this petition.
