Saudi Arabia - Spare Them!

Ali al-Nimr was just 17 years old when he was arrested, on 14 February 2012, a few months after taking part in protests in Saudi Arabia’s mainly Shi’a Muslim Eastern Province.

He and two other teenage boys, Abdullah al-Zaher and Dawood al-Marhoon, who were arrested shortly after him, say they were tortured and later made to ‘confess’. These “confessions” were all it took for the Saudi Arabian authorities to sentence them to death.  

The three young men have no more chances to appeal. In 2015, both an appeal court and the Supreme Court upheld their sentences without their knowledge or that of their lawyers and families.

Only King Salman can save them.

Ali’s uncle, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, was executed on 2 January alongside 46 other people, partly for his involvement in the same anti-government protests in 2011.

There’s no time to lose: Ali, Abdullah and Dawood could be executed at any moment.

Help us flood Twitter by demanding the lives of these three young activists are saved. As Ali’s father says “Every day that passes the sword is closer to his neck.”
