Jimmy Wales on Raif Badawi
Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of the incredible Wikipedia website and global organisation, offered this message of support today for Raif Badawi.
"Raif Badawi was unjustifiably sentenced to a barbaric punishment simply for exercising his fundamental human right of expressing his opinion. I press for Badawi's immediate exoneration and release. I call the Saudi Arabian regime to stop the disgraceful persecution of peaceful activists who merely wish to voice their opinions and encourage it to adopt the values of freedom of expression" - Jimmy Wales, April 23 2015
