Protect Iraqi LGBT
Urgent action is needed to halt the execution of 128 prisoners on death row in Iraq. Many of those awaiting execution were convicted for the crime of homosexuality, according to IRAQI-LGBT
According to Ali Hili of IRAQI-LGBT, the Iraqi authorities plan to start executing them in batches of 20 from this week.
We have information and reports on members of our community whom been arrested and waiting for execution for the crimes of homosexuality, said Mr Hili. Iraqi lgbt has been a banned from running our activities on Iraqi soil.
Raids by the Iraqi police and ministry of interior forces cost our group the diapering and killing of 17 members working for Iraqi lgbt since 2005, added Mr Hili.

Dear President Obama,
When we started the war, there was one war to talk about between America and Iraq; but now there are several, one of which being the war against Gays, Lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders (LGBT) in Iraq.
We the undersigned are concerned about the lives of the LGBTs in Iraq. There are 128 prisoners on death row in Iraq. Many of those awaiting execution were convicted for the crime of homosexuality, according to IRAQI-LGBT. While we are in Iraq something should be done about the multiple wars in Iraq.
Thank you for your precious time.
