Petition: Chechnya: Stop Abducting and Killing Gay Men (Amnesty International)

Over a hundred men suspected of being gay are being abducted, tortured and even killed in the southern Russian republic of Chechnya according to credible sources inside the country.

The Chechen government won’t admit that gay men even exist in Chechnya, let alone that they ordered what the police call 'preventive mopping up' of people they consider to be undesirable.

We urgently need your help to call out the Chechen government on the persecution of people who are, as they put it, of 'non-traditional orientation' - and urge immediate action to ensure their safety.

Sign the petition now and urge the Russian and Chechen authorities to investigate these abductions and bring those responsible to justice.

Link: Sign here
Deadline: None is given
Time estimate: <5 mins
Requirements: personal information: first and last names, email address, country
Anything else: This is the second petition I've posted to stop the abduction and killing of gay men in Chechnya. I don't know how much signing a petition is going to help, but I figure it can't hurt to make my voice heard in as many places as possible.
