Saudi Arabia: Save Ali (21) from Beheading and Crucifixion!

type:Petition, Protest
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

Saudi Arabia is about to behead a 21-year-old man and then crucify him to display his body in public. A cynical fact: This same country was just chosen to head a U.N. Human Rights Council panel.

Ali Mohammed al-Nimr was arrested when he was only 17 for participating in demonstrations against the government, then he was convicted under torture. But his case is not an exception in the kingdom – Saudi Arabia has executed more than 100 people this year, that’s a rate of one every 2 days!

France has already requested that Saudis stop this execution, but the US, Germany, and the UK also maintain close relationships with the regime. The best way to get urgent action is to channel our outrage to these leaders who can persuade their Saudi allies.

Sign up now to save Ali, and then stop this human rights farce, his execution could happen anytime!
