Kiana Firouz granted leave to remain!

By Claire Jacob

Those of us who wrote to Theresa May about Kiana Firouz’s case should start celebrating, as she has just found out she can remain in safety in the UK! This shows what a difference people-power can make!

The 27-year old actress and lesbian activist faced deportation back to Iran, where she would have been at risk of torture and death as a result of her sexuality. 1,942 of us wrote to Theresa May telling her that this must be stopped.

Together we have shown that we will not sit back in cases like this where asylum seekers are at risk because of their sexuality.

38 Degrees has also teamed up with Still Human, Still Here to tell the government to give asylum seekers permission to work. Please get involved here: http://www.38degrees.org.uk/Permission-To-Work
