LISG member Jacqueline detained - please sign petition to support her release

LISG member Jacqueline was detained yesterday at Dallas Court signing centre by the UK Border Agency.
Jacqueline, who loves singing with Manchester Lesbian and Gay chorus, has had a claim for asylum refused and is preparing a fresh claim. We need to make a fuss to stop her being deported to danger in Uganda. As a known lesbian who been previously imprisoned in Uganda, Jacqueline is likely to suffer violence, imprisonment or even a threat to her life if she is returned. 

Please would you add your name to this petition:
Although Ugandan President Museveni recently blocked a proposed law to give life sentences to lesbians and gays, he clearly stated that he wants the abnormal condition of homosexuality cured, and recruits rescued. Gays and lesbians in Uganda still face prison sentences of up to seven years.

LISG volunteer Karen has been to visit Jacqueline in the holding centre. For the latest information on Jacqueline's detention, please visit our Facebook page:


Please help stop deportation of lesbian Nadine to Cameroon

Contact Air France Urgently

Please help stop the deportation of lesbian Nadine Ida Ketchakwe to Cameroon

She will be in enormous danger if she lands there.
Nadine is about to be returned to a country where homosexuality is illegal, an imprisonable offence and where just last week gay prisoner Roger Jean-Claude Mbédé died in suspicious circumstances  https://www.allout.org/en/actions/remember-roger).

Nadine was in a forced marriage and was raped repeatedly by her husband; her uncle and father also assaulted her; and she bears the scars of this abuse. Her husband has threatened to kill her for being lesbian. His brother is in the Cameroonian police and has also threatened her life.

Her claim for asylum was rejected as the judge didn't believe she's lesbian.
Despite letters of support from lesbian friends the judge said her claim to be lesbian was 'uncorroborated'. How do you prove you are a lesbian, if the accounts of other lesbians about you are not accepted?

What can you do?

Ask Air France & their staff to refuse to accept Nadine as a passenger.
