Petition Supporting British Gay World War II Code Breaker

CNN reports on a petition asking the British government to apologize for its persecution of Alan Turing, who broke the famed German Enigma code during the war. He was subjected to chemical castration after being charged with "gross indecency" for having a homosexual relationship.

Never mind that he helped win a war.

Links to the petition are in the CNN article. Note: There are two petitions, one only for British and another for international support.
