The American government are attempting to extradite a British citizen for a crime he "may" have committed in the UK. Now a British journalist has asked Barack Obama for his assistance in fighting this blatant breach of human rights.

It is UK law that your case be heard where the crime took place, yet our government is letting the Yanks have their way and this guy faces up to 60 years in a US prison for just trying to find out the truth about UFO's and contact!!

Gary McKinnon, allegedly managed to access US government computers from a house in the UK and apparently FOUND evidence to support the talk of a massive cover-up, but now he is being treated like a terrorist!

No only is this a blatant BREACH OF HUMAN RIGHTS, this guy could after extradition, face months or even years at Guantalemo Bay awaiting trial.

Last week, the UK law lords refused to overturn the decision to extradite Gary, and he is now taking the matter to the European Courts on the human rights issue.

Now in the USA, they PROTECT THEIR CITIZENS and if we wanted to extradite one of them, we would have a real fight on our hands getting them extradited, yet our government just hand him over - it's a major injustice. This guy is being hung out to dry by the US and UK governments!!

A campaign has now started to boycott American holidays and hit the Yanks in the pocket until this decision is reversed and we urge you all to support this.

Gary should be tried in the UK for his "crime". Or is this just "civil disobedience" in Martin Luther King and Mahatma Ghandi style and is he right to exploit these government cover-ups?

I can't believe we're just handing him over! It so wrong. He has a right to be tried in a UK court for a crime commited in the UK. Extraditing him just shows how much our government bows down to the USA. What about when that 'friendly fire' incident happened a while ago. The US Military refused to cooperate and actually hid evidence and the video or what happened. Now we just hand this guy over to them? I doubt he'd get put in Gitmo though. Too much bad press. He'll sure as hell spend the rest of his life in jail if convicted.

What is it with us in the UK. We bow down to the US, we bow down to the EU. We're allowing ourselves to get shafted by pretty much everyone!

Well said - I totally agree.

Spread the word - tell as many people as you can about this injustice.
