Equal Pay, Pension and Benefits for all serving in Her Majesty's Armed Forces

This petition requests the Ministry of Defence amend the law, so that all people of all nationality's who serve/or have served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces, be given equal pay, privileges, benefits and pensions immediately.

Gyanraj Rai, 55, is staging a hunger strike to attempt to make the Ministry of Defence offer equal rights to all serving personnel of the Armed Forces, whichever country they hail from. Gyanraj has said “I will die in the name of dignity and equality for all Gurkhas.

That is all he and many others want, equal pay, benefits and pensions to the UK colleagues they serve alongside on behalf of our nation. How can we ask people to fight for our country and in good conscience, basically tell them their life isn't as valuable as a UK citizens.

The sooner we hit our target the sooner we can save a life...please help?
