Con­grat­u­la­tions on the fea­ture Sleep­walk­ing

Into Sharia [by An­drew M Potts]. The Sharia law in Mau­ri­ta­nia, Afghanistan, Pak­istan, Qatar, Su­dan, Saudi Ara­bia, Ye­men, parts of So­ma­lia and North­ern Nige­ria can all have the death penalty handed down for var­i­ous forms of ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity de­pend­ing on the coun­try. As a mem­ber of Amnesty In­ter­na­tional for many years, we are in­volved with work­ing on ho­mo­pho­bia, vi­o­lence, ar­bi­trary ar­rest, tor­ture and im­pris­on­ment of LGBTIQ peo­ple. We, who are lucky to have our free­dom and hu­man rights, I urge to lobby and protest for those who are forced to live un­der regimes that le­galise ho­mo­pho­bia.
