Petition to save Joan Shurland from death

Please sign the petition below to keep Joan Shurland in Britain


To the Rt Hon David Blunkett MP,

We the undersigned demand that Joan Shurland be allowed to stay in the UK. The deportation order placed on her by the Home Office constitutes a threat to her life. In Jamaica she has been targeted by her son&#39s murderers whose previous attempt on her life has left her partially disabled and blind in one eye.

In the light of her vulnerability and the grave danger she would face, we believe the decision to force Joan Shurland to return to Jamaica demonstrates a level of compassion far short of the requirements of humane government. We demand our government meets those requirements.
