Anti-persecution charity Open Doors has launched a global campaign to support persecuted Christians in Iraq, Syria and other Middle Eastern countries.

The petition asks for equal rights for Christians and other minorities, dignified living conditions and a role in the reconciliation and rebuilding of society, and will be presented to the UN in June 2017. The aim is to mobilise people from across the globe in safe countries, as well as those where there is persecution, to get a million people to sign the petition. In the UK and Ireland, it has already been signed by several thousand people at summer festivals.
