Leader of FEMEN, Inna Shevchenko On #RaifBadawi
Inna Shevchenko, Leader of FEMEN has sent her support for Raif. FEMEN is an international women’s movement of brave topless female activists painted with the slogans and crowned with flowers.
"If one considers that there are heroes in our time, Raif Badawi is definitely one of them. His simple sense of freedom is a threat to the entire dictatorial state of Saudi Arabia, his ideas and words are a revolution for us all. Wheras Saudi Arabia's bloody regime is torturing Raif's body and limiting his freedom through imprisonment, they cannot prevent making his ideas stronger and bigger... Badawi's ideas are everywhere now, in many people, and they are in me as well.
Criticising religion is our duty today as Badawi's case proves it. It is what we are supposed to call 'freedom'.
My only request will not be to the Saudi Arabian state to release Raif (it wouldn't be successful anyways) but instead to Raif and everyone including you, to keep these ideas, to spread them more, to be proud of them, so that soon, everyone will be able to enjoy fully his freedom, including the heroic Raif Badawi.
We will win this fight!"
Inna Shevchenko, Leader of FEMEN, May 2015
