The family of WWII codebreaker Alan Turing deliver Change.org petition to Downing Street signed by almost half a million people

Relatives of Alan Turing, the subject of the Oscar-award winning film The Imitation Game, delivered signatures from the Change.org petition calling for the more than 49,000 men who were convicted under the UK’s now revoked anti-gay laws to be pardoned like Turing was to No. 10 Downing Street.

Rachel Barnes, 52, (great niece), Thomas Barnes, 21 (great great nephew), and Nevil Hunt (great nephew) delivered over half a million signatures from the petition that was started on January 26. And while Turing’s conviction was pardoned, it is time that No. 10 Downing St. formally pardon and apologize for the convictions.
