About this website

Lilya (Oksana Akinshina) happy This website was inspired by the Lukas Moodysson film, Lilya 4-Ever starring Oksana Akinshina as Lilya. Although I knew that life was very hard for many people, it was this great film that really drove the point home for me. It broke my heart to realise that millions of young free spirits like Lilja are suffering terrible injustices right now in all parts of the world. I felt I had to do something. 4-Ever was the result and I hoped that information about prostitution and suicide plus an avalanche of signatures in response to the petitions against human trafficking, sexual slavery, poverty, drug use and violence would make an impact. There have been nowhere near enough signatures to send a petition to Downing Street, however, so…

Petitions are now closed and this website is for information only.

There are still useful links and good information for anyone genuinely interested in the issues.

Lessons learned

It seemed a good idea to make it easy for people to sign petitions but with 4-Ever it did not work because:
