It is now more than 5 years that Raif Badawi is in jail for having blogged.
His blog was liberal, for he is open-minded. Some of his demands are now realized in Saudi Arabia, as the right for women to drive a car alone (the famous “Women Drive”).
But he is imprisoned. Saudi Arabia does not recognize free speech, and I write this post to speak out against this imprisonment.
I will be short, because free speech is a fundamental human right. Putting Raif Badawi in jail is a blatant violation of human rights.
There are petitions to sign. Here are the link:
This one is of Amnesty Canada, where his wife moved and created the Raif Badawi Foundation .
And there is this other one, more general.
If you think, as me, that human rights are worth a signature, and worth to fight for, please sign and share widely on your social networks.
Free Raif Badawi.
He is a prisoner of conscience.
We must fight for his freedom.
