A Question of Love a Letter from my cousin -- please sign
Please sign and pass the letter below on and KNOW this is why Republicans MUST be overthrown and Hillary (the ONLY Democrat who can win) MUST keep any Republican from the oval office and everywhere else seats of power exist. It is important for ALL of us in so many ways as discrimination we all know exists here as well and not only for the LGBT community. Persons of color, women, the elderly, the disabled and others who need power to be on their side!
Please sign below and pass the letter from my cousin around.
This was sent to me by my first cousin on my father’s side (who is gay).
Imagine: 3 years in prison just for being gay. That's what could happen to Lahcen and Mohsine, two Moroccan gay men. They were arrested while taking a photo next to a monument in Rabat. The police said they were violating "public modesty" by standing too close together.
Their trial is in 3 days, where it's likely they'll get a 3-year jail term: last month some other Moroccans were given 3-year sentences, just for being gay. All Out's Moroccan partner, the Aswat Collective, is fighting for Lahcen and Mohsine's freedom and have urgently asked us to help.
A huge global outcry, just before their trial on Tuesday could be a game-changer for Lahcen and Mohsine. The Moroccan authorities are investing in the tourist industry to attract visitors from across the world – they can't risk the damage to their reputation of a massive global petition.
Just 3 days left to speak out that being gay is not a crime. Sign and share the petition now, to build a giant call for Lahcen and Mohsine to be freed:
