Stop the horror in Brunei

  • by: All Out
  • recipient: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
Brunei has introduced strict laws that call for horrifying measures for a wide range of what the authorities consider "offenses" – among them death by stoning for adultery, gay sex, abortion, and blasphemy.

These laws have a particularly chilling effect on the LGBT+ community in a country that has been described as the worst place to be gay in Southeast Asia.

Being gay is already punishable in Brunei by a jail term of up to 10 years.

Many LGBT+ citizens have left the country, fearing persecution and death. Those who have remained now live in constant fear.

We know the Brunei government is on the wrong side of history.

Activists around the world have been fighting for decades to build a world where nobody gets punished because of who they are or who they love. And we're winning - like in India where the Supreme Court decriminalized homosexuality last September.

All U.S. officials have done so far is to issue a press release. This is not enough.

Join us in rallying a global outcry to ask the U.S. government to take a stand and urge Brunei's government to revoke the laws and respect the rights of its citizens. Our pressure could help prevent innocent Bruneians from being stoned to death.

Help fight back against this attack on the human rights of ALL Brunei people and sign the petition now.
TO: The U.S. government

Brunei has introduced strict laws that call for horrifying measures for a wide range of what the authorities consider "offenses" – among them death by stoning for adultery, gay sex, abortion, and blasphemy.

These barbaric measures are a massive attack on human rights in Brunei.

We call on you to join the global outcry and to ask Brunei's government to revoke the laws and to respect the rights of its citizens.
