Waleed Abu al-Khair has had a long history of run-ins with Saudi Arabian authorities during their crackdown on Human Rights. All of the country’s prominent and independent human rights defenders have been imprisoned, threatened into silence or have fled the country.

In July 2014, Human rights lawyer Waleed Abu al-Khair was jailed for 15 years under a cruel terrorism law in Saudi Arabia. He has defended many peaceful activists, including jailed blogger Raif Badawi, and has challenged the widespread crackdown on human rights across the country.

This is what happens when you are the voice for Human Rights in Saudi Arabia.

With your support, we will keep the pressure on King Salman and the Saudi Arabian authorities to release Waleed and all other prisoners of conscience immediately and without exception.
