Great news everyone, overnight, Allout.org have had an increase of 32,000+ votes for this petition to veto the anti-gay bill. I'm going to send a few more emails today, and most likely some government leaders – already sent David Cameron one last night, I will probably send one to John Key and Jullia Gillard today.
Thanks again <3
Edit: Emails have been sent to John Key, Julia Gillard, Nelson Mandela, TVNZ and 3 news just now. I basically used this platform:
I just signed a petition calling on Nigeria's President to veto a horrific bill that would jail gay and lesbian people for up to 14 years – just for being gay. I feel the bill the Nigerian President is trying to push through will effect many LGBT people around the world in the most negative way and it shouldn't be a criminal offense just for being gay. This new law would make it crime not only to be gay but also to know and support a person who is gay or lesbian. Activists in Nigeria have asked for help to stop the bill.
If the Nigerian President knows we're all watching, he will need to respond. With a media firestorm and a petition of 100,000 signatures from around the world – he'll have to veto. Will you sign with me now?
Many thanks for reading this issue ________,
