End the Hollywood 'Free Polanski' campaign

44 Signatures Goal: 100

Please join the Survivors Trust campaign against the Hollywood personalities who have jumped to the defence of film director Roman Polanski after his arrest on the rape of a 13 year old girl. Hollywood names including Woody Allen, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese, to name but a few, have called for Polanski to be freed immediately from arrest in Switzerland on a US extradition warrant. Polanski is wanted for fleeing the US 30 years ago to avoid sentencing after admitting unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. The grand jury transcripts of the sex abuse case paint a harrowing picture of the events that allegedly unfolded between Polanski and a 13-year-old girl at the home of Jack Nicholson in 1977, including the following.. "I was ready to cry," she said. "I was kind of -- I was going, 'No. Come on. Stop it.' But I was afraid." The actress Whoopi Goldberg said: "I don't believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and when they let him out he was like, "You know what, this [judge] is going to give me a hundred years in jail. I'm not staying.' So that's why he left." Whoopi, what happened to the Color Purple And what for that matter is 'rape-rape' Rape IS rape. The Survivors Trust is calling for an immediate end to this appalling campaign, which is taking victim blame to a new, yet horrific level. Please sign our petition to bring an end to this campaign and stop the Hollywood 'Free Polanski' movement.
