Saudi Arabia Commits a Massacre Against Humanity – 47 Beheadings in One Day

Saudi authorities have started 2016 by executing 47 people, including prominent activist and political prisoner Nimr Al-Nimr, thereby flouting every appeal issued by international NGOs and countries that urged them to address the issues as per the international conventions and treaties, including freedom of assembly and expression as well as relinquish the death sentence.We strongly express our dismay and objection to the executions as blatant crimes against humanity and the world must take a clear position towards the oil kingdom’s violations and abuse. It is unimaginable that way in to the twenty first century, we still witness medieval practices in one of the world’s economical powerhouses.

Nimr Al-Nimr was arrested in 2012 after his participation in peaceful reform demands during the Arab Spring of 2011. He was put on the list of terrorists who pose a threat to national security despite international appeals that he is a political prisoner. Among the executed was Ali Saeed Al-Rebh who was a minor at the time of his arrest.

We call for the withdrawal of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from the Human Rights Council as it does not belong to this international monument of human achievements and does not stand for what it represents. In 2015 alone, Saudi Arabia has executed 157 individuals and started the new year by beheading 47 more people in one day with a long list of many more to go under the blade in the upcoming year if the world does not put a stop to the bloodshed.
