Campaign Events Week Ending May 03, 2015
The World has seen an increased number of events and vigils in support of Raif Badawi this week. The momentum just keeps on growing, as does the pressure on Saudi Arabia.
Next week, Thursday May 7th, sees the one year anniversary of the cruel, medieval and inhumane sentence handed down to Raif by a Court in Saudi Arabia - 10 years in prison and 1000 lashes - FOR NON-CRIMES. Many many more events are planned - BIGGER and STRONGER than ever.
