128 Homosexuals Sentenced to Death in Iraq - Urgent Appeal to Stop Executions

Share this article
Human Rights Groups in several countries have taken up the appeal from the IRAQI LGBT association, based in London, which calls on activists and democratic citizens to take part in an international campaign to save the lives of 128 prisoners sentenced to death because they are homosexual.

According to the judicial and religious authorities, the prisoners will be murdered in groups of about 20 people. The first series of executions is imminent.

Over the last three years 132 homosexuals have been put to death, including 17 Iraqi LGBT activists.

Arcigay, Italy’s national gay rights organisation, has officially asked the Italian Government – through the Foreign Secretary – to support the international campaign against these executions that violate all the international charters in defence of human rights.

EveryOne Group is also asking the American institutions - which are still very influential in Iraq - to support this petition in favour of human rights and life, and invites all democratic citizens to send requests for clemency to the politicians and authorities who are able to put a stop to these executions:
