Wish Ali al-Nimr a Happy Birthday

Ali al-Nimr was sentenced to death as a child for the ‘crime’ of attending pro-democracy protests in Saudi Arabia. He will spend his 22nd birthday on Wednesday 21st December on death row. Sentenced to ‘death by crucifixion’, he could be executed at any time.

When you’re trapped in a box, it can feel like the world has forgotten you. Birthdays can be particularly hard. For those on death row, the fear that you may not live to see your next birthday can be overwhelming. That’s why messages of support from people like you can make such a big difference.

Can you take a moment to sign a birthday card for Ali?


Dear Ali,

Happy 22nd Birthday! We want you to know that people around the world are thinking of you and campaigning for your release. Stay strong.

Best wishes,

Your supporters from around the world
