    10 YEARS AND 1,000 LASHES FOR BLOGGING!

    Raif Badawi should be in Canada today, with his wife and their three children. Instead he is in Briman prison, Jeddah city, Saudi Arabia.

    Flogging is a form of torture. And Raif Badawi has been sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in prison. Raif is a prisoner of conscience and should be immediately and unconditionally released.

    UPDATE: Raif was given 50 lashes in public on Friday, January 9, 2015. Our activism has helped to make sure that Raif hasn't been flogged since then. Saudi Arabia's Supreme Court upheld his sentence on June 12, 2015, increasing concerns that the flogging could start again.
