London vigil for imprisoned writers in Saudi Arabia

28 September 2018, 1:00 pm2:00 pm

Join English PEN and Reporters Without Borders for our monthly vigils in support of Raif Badawi, Waleed Abulkhair and Ashraf Fayadh

Supporters will be meeting outside the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in London, UK to continue calling for the release of blogger Raif Badawi, lawyer and activist Waleed Abulkhair and poet Ashraf Fayadh. All three are serving lengthy prison sentences in violation of their right to freedom of expression, while both Raif and Ashraf have the threat of hundreds of lashes looming over them.

**NB: Activists are asked to meet at the Curzon Street entrance to the Embassy**

If you can’t join us in person, you can still show your support by spreading the word, reading their work and joining calls for their immediate releases.
