The Dorchester Group – Boycott These Hotels

On the 1st May 2014, the State of Brunei implemented a new Sharia law penal code, punishing "crimes" of same sex acts by stoning to death.

The Dorcester Collection is a group of hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei. The Sultan, one of the world’s richest men, is head of state and has full executive authority.

It has been reported that the Dorchester Group does not tolerate discrimination.  But the fact remains that this business is owned by the Sultan, a man who wants to see gay people killed in a horrific and barbaric way.

We’re boycotting the Sultan’s hotels until internationally accepted basic human rights are restored. We hope you will too.
