Saudi Arabia: Free Women Activists

Israa_new.jpg

Thanks to grassroots and other pressure, on March 28 three Saudi Arabia released three of the imprisoned women activists on bail pending their trial. This is an important step, given that Saudi Arabia has been torturing the women, subjecting them to beatings, electro shock, and sexual abuse.

All of the women’s rights activists must be released and all charges must be dropped against all Saudi women’s rights activists, dissidents, bloggers, and journalists.


Dear Secretary Pompeo,

We are deeply concerned about Saudi Arabia’s systematic human rights abuses and recent targeting of dissidents, human rights activists, journalists, and bloggers. Many of those currently being imprisoned by Saudi Arabia are being held on dubious charges related to their activism- including having been part of the successful campaign for women to gain the right to drive.

On March 29, in response to pressure from the international community and members of U.S. Congress, Saudi Arabia released three of the imprisoned women activists - Aziza al-Yousef, Eman al-Nafjan, Roqaya al-Muhareb - on bail.

We recognize the positive step that releasing al-Yousef, al-Nafjan, and al-Muhareb is and call on you to use the power of the U.S. State Department to ask Saudi Arabia to go further. The only way to enact  necessary progress is to release and drop all charges against all of the imprisoned activists, journalists, and bloggers.

Sincerely,
