Prominent US Figures to Saudis: Release Badawi or Lash Us - The Clarion Project


Saudi Blogger, Raif Badawi, has been sentenced to 1,000 lashes & ten years in prison for the crime of blogging in support of tolerance & freedom of conscience in Saudi Arabia. Raif has already endured the first 50 lashes.

"We, the signatories of this petition, commit ourselves to each individually take lashes in Raif’s place. We would rather step forward and share in Raif’s punishment than be bystanders to the torture of this innocent man by the government of Saudi Arabia. We also stand in solidarity with other individuals sentenced to such barbaric punishments around the world and our pledge is for them as well.
