My Alan Turing petition hit the magic 500 signatures mark

My petition just hit 500 signatures which means that I will be getting a response from the government about it.

Yay!

It would be a good idea to make this an international effort. Alan Turing contributed in the most significant ways to the computing world, a world that is global.

Just wanted to say a massive thx for this petition.

My boyfriend saw it on Graham Linehan's Twitter, he passed it to me, I've posted it on Facebook.

What happened to Alan, and no doubt thousands of others, was an awful violation of human rights.

It is surely time that the current government - too late for previous administrations - paid more than lip-service to the issue of homosexuality. So many great people in the past were gay - a few have been "honoured" - and it is incumbent on a civilsed world to accept that fact, and put right the wrongs perpetrated in the name of "normality". Alan Turing and so many others gave much to this world, but were punished for wanting to be who they were - another who springs to mind is Oscar Wilde. It's time for society, especially those in power, to do the "right" thing.

Any way we can get one going that can be signed by people outside of the UK? Would love to sign it, but reside in the US.
