Petition Action

Forced marriages must become against the law

Additional Information

Forced Marriages must end
It is a violation of human rights.

A forced marriage must now become against the law in its own right. We petition the government to assure this happens. To many people are being let down as it stands now. A law would help greatly and be a voice for those who are losing their lives

The British government must stand up for all those suffering and enshrine their rights in law specifically for this. There is no honour in forcing someone to marry or murder.

Say no to forced Marriages Enough is enough!
