Please join us for our human rights case to make the Moroccan government legalize homosexuality in Morocco. This is a very important issue for us, as this year so many people were jailed, attacked, abused, raped for being gay.
The appalling conditions that gay people go through during their prison terms leave them with life-enduring traumas, rejection from their families, friends and job-market. LGBT community is leaving in constant fear as we are enable to report crimes and attacks against us to the Police! We need a law that protects us from violence and death threat not a law that makes us criminals!
Amnesty International calls for the decriminalization of homosexuality where such legislation remains, including a review of all legislation which could result in the discrimination, prosecution and punishment of people solely for their sexual orientation or gender identity. All such laws should be repealed or amended.Morocco should make a move and protect the LGBT community!
Gay rights are human rights and excluding them from the agenda of protection of human rights in any country is a pure hypocrisy and oppression. Countries where you are punish for your sexual orientation like Morocco choose what suits its political and religious agenda over humanity and justice. Morocco, be inclusive not selective!
