UK Folks - Kiana Firouz, Iranian Dissident, to be deported?

"Kiana Firouz, 27 years old, is an outspoken Iranian LGBT rights activist, filmmaker, and actress. When clips of her video documentary work featuring the struggle and persecution of gays and lesbians in her country were acquired by Iranian intelligence, agents began to follow Firouz around Tehran, harassing and intimidating her. She fled for England where she could safely continue her work and studies."

In short, the Iranian government is calling for deportation. She's applied for asylum, and has so far been denied it. Her deportation is pretty much a death sentence.
