Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
(ETA: Seems you can only sign from the UK; definitely share if you have followers there!)
This is my comic Blame. It’s taken me a VERY long time to create this (mentally not physically. Physically it only took me a little over a week to draw).
Just reblogging this because no one gets to see it when it’s buried in my blog, and the whole point of the comic was to make me tell people.
YES YES YES YES YES I’m SO happy this is getting recognition and I wanna pass it on to tumblr. This is the FROMT COVER of the daily news today. This is VERY important for my family in particular.
Our current mayor, Bill De Blasio, wants to replace horse drawn carriages in New York City with electric cars; which is WRONG. People sometimes think these horses aren’t treated well; when in fact they have many luxuries and some get more vacation time than I do (and I’m a high school student!) I visit the stables all the time; I would know if something’s up. These horses are very happy doing their job, and they’re loved and cared for; and if this electric car thing passes, I honestly have no clue what’s going to happen to these horses.Plus, more cars is the last thing NYC needs, am I right
This is my father’s way of supporting our family, and there’s so much controversy surrounding it now, just because of organizations that don’t know or care about animals like PETA, and people who will just do anything for money, like Mayor De Blasio. As you might see in the last picture, (it’s kinda blurry so here’s what it says if you can’t read it); “Mayor de Blasio has completely sided with the wealthy folks who have used their money and influence to get him elected and are now expecting payback”
We’re already doing pretty good in the eyes of the media. We have both the Right and the Left on our side; we’re receiving good recognition from CNN to Fox, along with local stations like NY1, to newspapers like the Daily News; which is where I ask for your help, tumblr.
As you can see, there’s a petition right now, that you can sign online at http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/exclusive-news-campaigning-save-carriage-horses-article-1.1757649 Help my family and all others on our side tell Mayor de Blasio, that NO! We do NOT want to ban the horses in Central Park! Sign the petition and pass this post around!

I tried to va Magnus but idk. my voice is probably not substantial enough.
I have severe voice dysphoria, please don’t laugh. :^(
From the episode Dueling Buttons
this is shorai! a crystal ball object head. c: i was inspired to create her after finally reading modmad’s rad webcomic The Property of Hate! everyone should go read it. yes yes.(there’s a little reference to the main characters in the drawing on the upper left huehue)
shorai works as a fortune teller and enjoys collecting odd antiques.
her fortunes are shown as moving images within her crystal ball head, and the colors in the ball change depending on her mood.
less color = negative emotions and/or lack of mental activity.
more color = more positive and/or heated emotions.
she has a certain level of telekinesis and uses it to host floating tea parties. ` v `
feel free to ask more about her, im still developing her character ~ v ~;
oh no MORE CUTIES
Request: Goofy wonders if he’s TRULY BEAUTIFUL (Cucumber Quest)
Goofy as Count Legato from Cucumber Quest???
Cause when I think Count Legato, I think Goofy.
So, for those of you who don’t know, the battle theme is actually a remix of a much older song known as “Pepper Steak” (circa 1930’s) by The Washboard Rhythm Kings. oHHH PEPPAH STEAK!
Oooh super good
