Vigil for Writers in Saudi Arabia

Join us, ALQST and Reporters Without Borders on January 31 for our next monthly vigil in solidarity with writers, journalists and activists at risk and imprisoned in Saudi Arabia.

This month’s protest will mark five years since the brutal public flogging of imprisoned blogger Raif Badawi on January 9, 2015. Despite having been arrested more than two years earlier, it was not until Badawi was lashed 50 times in public, with hands and feet bound, that the world really began to pay attention to his case.

Ever since, we have been holding regular vigils at the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in London to maintain awareness of his case and to show our support for Badawi and the many other writers, journalists and activists detained in the Kingdom.

(NB: Supporters are asked to meet at the Curzon Street entrance to the embassy.)
