Notations On Our World: On the Plight of the Saudi Blogger Raif Badawi & Freedom of Speech


We here @ #Outsiders have been showcasing the plight of Raif Badawi who as noted in the Amnesty International Call to Action Earlier today, ".... that Saudi Arabia's Supreme Court upheld blogger Raif Badawi's sentence to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for "insulting Islam through electronic channels."  We joined the call to action by Amnesty International to prevail upon Saudi Authorities to reconsider this verdict in support of Freedom of Speech everywhere and in support of Ensaf Haidar, Raif's Wife and his children.   

We will continue to monitor this case over the ensuing days and weeks.
