I am disturbed that
- the UK Home Office will deport 19-year-old gay Iranian Mehdi Kazemi back to Iran, where his life is most surely in danger. (He was studying in the UK.)
- there isn’t a strong campaign to pressure the UK government to allow him to stay there.
Kazemi’s partner (or boyfriend, variously reported) was probably hanged and the best the Home Office can offer is that he’ll be safe if he’s discrete. Kinda hard after his name, face and case have been splashed widely in the press.
Right now I’m asking if anyone has seem more than I have, about a concerted effort. I’ll write more about possible actions, especially for Americans, if nothing crops up.
