Eilaktion: Abschiebung von Kiana Firouz verhindern!

Kiana Firouz, 27 Jahre alt, ist eine iranische LGBT-Aktivistin, Filmemacherin und Schauspielerin.
Nachdem Ausschnitte aus ihrem Dokumentarfilm über den Kampf und Verfolgung Schwuler und Lesben in
ihrem Land die iranischen Behörden erreichten, wurde sie von Agenten der Regierung durch Tehran verfolgt,
belästigt und bedroht. Sie floh nach England wo sie ihre Arbeit und ihr Studium in Sicherheit
fortführen konnte.
Jetzt soll sie abgeschoben werden, was für sie Folter und Ermordung bedeuten würde!
Also unterzeichnet die Petition und verbreitet die Nachricht weiter!!

Kiana Firouz, 27 years old, is an outspoken Iranian LGBT rights activist, filmmaker, and actress.
When clips of her video documentary work featuring the struggle and persecution of gays and lesbians
in her country were acquired by Iranian intelligence, agents began to follow Firouz around Tehran,
harassing and intimidating her. She fled for England where she could safely continue her work
and studies.
She plays a starring role in Cul de Sac, a documentary film produced in the UK about the condition
of lesbians in Iran, and based heavily on Firouz’s own life story. Directed by Ramin Goudarzi-Nejad
and Mahshad Torkan, the movie willpremiere in London in a few days. Since the trailer was posted on
YouTube in December 2009, Cul de Sachas attracted global media attention, with thousands of views.
Apparently, some of those views included members of Ahmadinejad’s puppet media in Iran. They know
who Firouz is and what she stands for. They want her to come back to the country she was born in
to answer for it.
Firouz, understandably, has requested asylum from the British government. Much to everyone’s shock
and dismay, the British Home Office has rejected her application for refugee status. Yes, they know
she’s gay. Yes, they know she could be deported back to Iran at any time, and that if this happens,
Firouz will most likely be sentenced to torture and death after being found guilty of the “unspeakable
sin of homosexuality” because she has participated in explicit lesbian sex scenes in the movie, and
been a fierce proponent for human rights in her country.
In Iran, the punishment for lesbianism involving mature consenting women consists of 100 lashes.
This punishment can be applied up to three times. After a fourth violation of Iranian law, a woman
convicted of “unrepentant homosexuality” is finally executed by hanging, often publicly, in front
of a howling mob.
