Russian LGBTQ Asylum Seeker faces Deportation

Ira Putilova has been detained today by UKBA officials. Ira is an LGBTQ person from Russia who is currently claiming asylum in the U.K for her own safety. In Russia she was harrassed, followed, and attacked, by state officials, the police and Neo Nazis because of her political activism and LGBTQ status; if she is returned to Russia she is likely to face torture, detention, and potentially death. She was taken to Yarls Wood Immigration Removal Centre and may face imminent deportation. Her campaign asks everyone reading this to spread the word about Ira and her situation, and to contact groups or people who might be able to help. All and any actions of support/solidarity are greatly appreciated by Ira and her Friends.
