    Please help, doing this as a favour for a friend.

    Hey folks, so, I came upon this petition from a very close friend of mine who worked on a documentary this year. It's completed and has been already screened. It's a student documentary and for obvious reasons, it's not online because it's awaiting more festival submissions.


    However, from that doc, the subject was Naim, an Albanian living in Canada for about six years, who has been battling with Immigration Canada to keep him in the country as a refugee until things blow over or until they are settled back home.


    The reason he fled his country is because in Albania, there is an ancient tradition called a blood fleud. The principle of that tradition is pretty simple - an eye for an eye.


    His cousin killed someone and the family's victim is looking for revenge, so Naim is the target, even though he didn't do it or had anything to do with it.


    And he's been away from his family to keep them and himself safe. He has tried several appeals but each of them being denied, and he might be deported very soon if there is no action taken.


    Hence the petition, which is to let him stay as a refugee in Canada. I don't know this man, but I care about the person who knows this man and made a documentary about him. He's a close friend and is also Albanian.


    The petition is free to sign and takes seconds of your time. It was posted on Facebook, but that's really not enough and it only needs 800+ signatures left.


    Whether or not this will work, I don't know, but it is worth trying. So please, take your time to read through it to get a better understanding of this body of text.

    And I realize it's a gaming forum, but I feel the Off Topic section is the right place for this and I've seen political posts here before and surveys, that were successful.


    TL; DR?

    https://www.change.org/petitions/let-naim-stay


    This petition seeks to keep Naim Cekaj in Canada. Naim is a hard-working immigrant who runs his own business but has been declined a refugee status.

    Naim had to leave Albania because he is involved in a blood feud. After Naim's cousin killed a man, the blood feud threatened Naim's life and forced him into hiding.

    The Kanun of Lek Dukagjini is an ancient code that is still practiced in Albania, which states blood demands blood from a male member of the killer's kin, not necessarily the killer themselves. Naim left Albania in order to protect himself because he was receiving threats and was a prisoner in his own house.

    Naim has been living in Canada for six years away from his wife and his two young daughters. Naim cannot bring his family over until he has obtained a status in Canada. He has been served deportation and all his appeals have been denied.

    This petition aims to keep Naim safe in Canada and bring his family over by appealing to the Minister of Immigration.

    Thank You

    So they have the thinking capacity of a 4-year old?
