Free Saudi women who fought for the right to drive

At the meeting tonight we'll be e-mailing the Saudi authorities about women activists who campaigned for the right to drive and are now being persecuted for their actions even though the driving ban has been lifted! If you can't come tonight please follow this link and SEND AN EMAIL

Women activists in Saudi Arabia who fought for the right to drive face 20 years in prison. Reports suggest they have been tortured and abused in detention. After years of campaigning, the ban on driving for women in Saudi Arabia has been lifted. But in a cruel twist, the women who bravely fought for this right have been arrested and branded ‘traitors’. Some of these women have been provisionally released, showing the authorities are listening.
