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.

    Saudi Arabia led by Mohammad Bin Salman is violating or supporting the violation of human rights in many areas.


    1. In Yemen, Salman and his regional allies bombing civilians and stonewalling humanitarian efforts to help them at the same time.


    2. Salman is cracking down on perceived domestics political enemies to solidify his power. Stifling the voice of activist, including women rights advocates.


    3. He is supporting and collaborating with the current US administration (2016-present) and apartheid state Israel to undermine the Palestinians struggle to gain the right of self-determination and return home through a meaningful international peace agreement.


    4. He allegedly orders the killing of Washington Post Journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside Saudi embassy in Turkey.


    But, Hollywood gave him a red carpet during his visits to the US. “Vice” owned by HBO, should address his gross abuse of power and human rights violation immediately. Otherwise, it will harm the reputation of creative and journalistic efforts of HBO.
