Justice for Jamal Khashoggi

On October 2, prominent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi embassy in Turkey to obtain paperwork for his marriage. Little did he know that he would never get out alive. Join our demand to the U.S. State Department: If the Saudi government was behind Jamal’s murder, the U.S. must recall its senior official to Saudi Arabia (there is no U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia) and take immediate measures to sanction the Saudi regime.


U.S. Department of State,

It is unacceptable that you have remained quiet about the murder of prominent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. From the war on Yemen to the imprisoning of women activists, Saudi Arabia is a persistent and vile perpetrator of human rights abuses. Now it appears that they have carried out the cold-blooded murder of a journalist who wrote for a leading U.S. paper and was a US resident.

If it is verified by investigators in Turkey that Jamal was murdered by the government of Saudi Arabia, you must take immediate action to recall our senior official to Saudi Arabia and place sanctions on the Saudi government.

No country that commits egregious human rights abuses and murders journalists should receive special status and friendship from the U.S. You must demand answers and hold Saudi Arabia accountable.

Sincerely,

    The World should hold Mohammed bin Salman accountable for the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, the war in Yemen and the imprisoning and torture of women activists in Saudi Arabia.

    Don’t let Saudi Arabia get away with the murder of prominent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Tell the State Department to recall the U.S. Senior official to Saudi Arabia now! #JusticeForJamal via @codepink https://www.codepink.org/jamal_khashoggi?recruiter_id=789207

    I knew Jamal, and we can’t let this be the new normal. Jamal’s life & that of a journalist in an open democracy such as ours (the USA) versus oil deals. Is that where we are as a society – we can do better. I am starting up a fund this year to preserve Jamal’s legacy by helping train future Saudi journalists. If you can spread the work- www.justice4jamal.org – you guys are doing great work too – on Iran – I hope you can keep Jamal’s spirit alive too. Cheers, Kieran

    It is human decency to make sure that all accountable for this murder should be held to account. I have never been so disappointed in an American president. Please help the family of Jamal Khashoggi get justice for there father.

    The murderers must think a hundred times before killing a journalist or a private citizen. Let justice be done.
