Eddy Cosmas, a homosexual man who last year was about to be removed to Tanzania has finally won the right to be granted asylum in the UK.
“Within three weeks, Eddy will get political asylum,” said Anna Maria Pichierri from the Movement for Justice.
“In the case of Eddy Cosmas, our common action, which has raised much international publicity, has reversed the situation and led to a victory over the system," she added.
Eddy’s battle for political asylum was led by the Movement for Justice and EveryOne Group. They were supported by a network of human rights activists, including Peter Tatchell, MP John McDonnell, the Mayor of Richmond (California), Radical Party, the National Union of Students (NUS), Black Students Campaign, NUS LGBT campaign, Gary Virginia and Michael Petrelis of Gays Without Borders (San Francisco), and Skyline High School Gay/Straight Alliance (California).
