Advice for VICE: Doing business with the murderous Saudi regime isn’t edgy!

In light of the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi and the ongoing war in Yemen, many prominent companies have announced they will be cutting ties with Saudi Arabia. Add your name to our petition demanding that VICE ends their contract with the Saudi Research and Marketing Group now!


Though several journalists at VICE have covered the countless recent human rights abuses committed by the Saudi regime, VICE remains in contract with Saudi-based publishing group SMRG to produce promotional videos of the country. The company has close ties with the regime. We demand that VICE cancel this contract immediately.

    Vice is in your name, but try not to embody it.

    It’s quite puzzling that a media company like VICE would engage in or any way assist to create promotional videos for a repressive authoritarian regime like Saudi Arabia. It’s a country that in cold blood murdered a journalist for his justified criticism of the regime. VICE should be ashamed to help promote a country run by a government that represses its people and their rights the way Saudia Arabia does. What does VICE stand for if it can’t stand for free expression?
