Lesbian asylum seeker to be deported to Uganda

Activists call for the United Kingdom to #SaveAnne and stop her deportation.

A Ugandan lesbian woman is set to be deported from the UK to Uganda on Wednesday evening, despite an online campaign demanding a stop to her removal. Anne Nassozi fled Uganda in December 2013, two months before the country passed an anti-gay law, and was detained in a UK immigration centre following a failed bid for asylum. 

The Save Anne campaign said Nassozi faces greater danger returning to her country and would be prone to violence. If convicted under Uganda's anti-gay law, she could possibly face a long jail term. 

Activists used the #SaveAnne to voice their concerns over Nassozi's asylum case.
