On Tuesday 2 February at 13.00, Amnesty International Ireland will be marching from their office at Fleet Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 to the Saudi Arabian Embassy, Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin 2, to protest against the executions of 47 people including a number of journalists.

These executions are especially galling in light Saudi Arabia’s current position on the Human Rights Council. The aim of this march is illustrate international public outrage at the actions of the Saudi Governement and to raise awareness in Ireland as to just how prevalent the use of the death penalty is in Saudi Arabia.

All NUJ members in Ireland are asked to attend as we aim to deliver the loudest possible message to the Saudi Government that their use of the death penalty cannot be used as a means of quelling dissent or freedom of expression.  It must end now!
