Free Ethiopian Christians: Protest at Saudi embassy in Washington DC
Ethiopians, Ethiopian-Americans and friends of Ethiopia are organizing a protest at the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington DC on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012 to demand the release of Ethiopians who are unjustly detained by the Saudi Arabia Government. Thirty Five Ethiopians — 6 men and 29 women — remain in jail under inhumane conditions since December 15th 2012.
The protesters condemn the unjust incarceration of these Ethiopian Christians who are arrested for praying in their own homes. We call on the Government of Saudi Arabia to respect their rights and to release them immediately.
Time/Date: Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 10 Am
Place: Saudi Arabia Embassy, 601 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Washington DC
