End anti-LGBTI+ crackdown in Chechnya
Right now, men and women are being tortured to death for being gay.
At the end of 2018, Chechen authorities began to abduct members of LGBTI+ community, bringing them to a Government facility. As we were ringing in the New Year with our friends and family, they were being tortured as part of a "preventive mopping up" of people deemed undesirable.
At least two people have died as a result of the torture. Around 40 others are still in detention. Their lives are in jeopardy, we have to act fast.
Sign the petition and demand Russia takes immediate action to protect gay and lesbian people living in Chechnya.
