Campaigner starts free John Cantlie petition
Petition aims to get the government to ensure the return of exmotorcycle journalist John Cantlie
A PETITION is calling on the Government to raise awareness and ensure the safe return of former motorcycle journalst John Cantlie, held captive in Syria by ISIS for over thee years.
Cantlie, who edited Two Wheels Only and Visordown magazine before becoming a war photojournalist, was captured in Syria in November 2012.
He has appeared in ISIS propaganda videos, most recently in February last year.
His plight has won support from the online motorcycle community, with riders retweeting messages from a 'Free John Cantlie' Twitter account.
The petition aims to get the British Government to obtain Cantlie's safe return to Britain, and has been started by campaigner Poppy Douglass. It will gain a response from Parliament if it collects 10,000 signatures. If goes on to collect 100,000, it will then be considered for debate in the House of Commons.
At the time of writing, 115 people have signed it; if you wish to add your name to that list, you can click here to do so.
