Protest at Saudi Arabian Embassy - Free Raif and All Prisoners of Conscience!

    Event
    Thursday, June 16, 2016 - 17:00 to 18:00

    Protest at Saudi Arabian Embassy - Free Raif and All Prisoners of Conscience!

    Join us as we continue to protest the flogging and imprisonment of Raif Badawi and all prisoners of conscience in Saudi Arabia! 

    Every Friday Raif Badawi is at risk of public flogging after prayers in front of al-Jafali mosque in Jeddah. This protest also marks the anniversary of his arrest on June 17th, 2012 and another Father’s Day where he will be separated from his children. 

    Raif Badawi and dozens of other activists and human rights defenders have been imprisoned and are at risk of cruel punishment in Saudi Arabia. Their imprisonment and ill-treatment reflect broader human rights concerns in Saudi Arabia, including extensive executions and war crimes in Yemen. 

    Together, we will call on Saudi Arabia to free Raif Badawi and all prisoners of conscience and to respect human rights. 

    If you can't join us please sign the petition spr.ly/6012x3oj and invite others!
